Do you consider an iPod touch an 'iPod'?

    Despite all of the other features, I still use music and video the most. Therefore, it's an Ipod.

    I don't really think it's quite that cut-and-dried. Yes, it's an iPod, as that is its primary function: A PMP. However it's also programmable and runs a stripped-down version of OS X. It is capable of pretty much anything as long as someone writes an app to do it, so it's also in a very real sense a computer. (A PDA is also a computer. It's just a small and limited one.)

    Consider that the iPod Touch is far more powerful and far more capable than any actual computer ever released in the 80s and even a good part of the 90s. It can do (or at least is capable of doing) all of the same things and can do them better.
