    Post your story of how you waited for the iPod Touch, how you survived
    until you got the iPod Touch. Anything that happened in your life involving the
    iPod Touch.

    Here's mine:

    There once was a boy, no older than 13.
    He waited, and waited many months.
    His friend in school,
    had one, indeed.
    He let him use it,
    Only for 5 minutes,
    He waited, and waited.
    And wait!
    Then his parents said they would get him one November.
    Months pasted. Now it's November,
    One more month.
    He got an iPod Touch, but, broken from a sleesebag on Ebay.
    He returned it.
    His parents then said "We'll get you it for Christmas." - Parents
    Very mad, he found out he had 300 dollars in his pockets,
    wanting to buy an iPod Touch,
    unfourtaintly, his parents would not let him.
    'Wait for Christmas, it will feel much better then."- Mother
    Now he waits.
    EDIT: Your's does not have to be telled like mine, just say the way you want it to be sayed.

    Let me hear your stories!

    I had been reading up on macrumors and 9to5mac months before September and was anticipating the release of the new iPods. There were a lot of rumors going around and I was very excited to see what the new iPods would look like. I got home on September 5th (the day of the keynote) and quickly hurried to my computer. I logged onto to apple.com and the front page was a picture of the new iPod line up. I looked at the touch and scanned it for safari and saw it, I was so excited.

    So I quickly navigated to to the "store" section of apple's site and purchased a 16GB iPod touch. Yeah, I may have rushed into it, but I had been waiting for 3 months for this release and couldn't wait any longer. So after I ordered it I waited for the keynote to come up on the website and watched it. So there was nothing left to do but wait. I received my iPod on September 20th. I was very excited and immediately plugged it in and started messing with it.

    I had been anticipating the jailbreak release, but a couple weeks later I found this site. I was glad to finally find a site specifically dedicated to the iPod touch. So after a couple weeks of waiting the jailbreak finally came out and I immediately jailbroke my iPod. Now, here I am, with a sweet jailbroken iPod touch. Sorry if this was a bit long, enjoy

    I had been eying the iPhone since it's release, but I can't justify the large monthly bill. I don't use my cell that much and it just wouldn't be worth the switch from verizon (where my phone added to my parents plan with insurance racks up a grand total of $15 a month). I then heard about the touch, but I thought the price was too steep. I've never even owened an iPod for that reason. Then my crappy sony 1Gb mp3 player bit the dust so it was time to make the decision that I'd charge a new mp3 player to my tuition bill

    . I ordered the 16GB touch from my campus computer store on 9/28 and waited... and waited what seemed like an eternity(7 days to be exact) then I gave in and went to the apple store with the cash from my last two pay checks and picked it up right there. The next day I get an email; my order had arrived. Now I have two iPod Touches!

    Edit: The next day I found this site and my touches have been even happier ever since!

    16 year old saw a kid with an iPod video in black. Decides to visit the Apple site and see if there are some new ones. Yes indeed there are. Then he sees the touch and falls in love. He waits a month and a half to get one. Finally when there is time to go to mall, he gets one. He is very, very, very happy with his jailbroken, 8GB iPod touch.

    this is the story of a 16 year old quickly becoming a mac fanboy and loving it.

    he followed rumors of a new revolutionary ipod for months, then viola it was there.
    he waited and waited to have the funds for the ipod touch.
    he is currently spending all his time out of skool raking leaves and doing odd jobs for money to have the satisfaction of paying for a 16 GB all on his own. he waits and waits for the day, the only thing helping him get along is living on this site and devoting his effort to learning how to develop for the ipod touch, so as to not seem like a mooch off the hard work of the other brilliant minds of this site, but to actually help contribute to his new #1 online community (suck it Ultimate-guitar.com and myspace)

    ) of having a personal music player. I had it for 2 yrs. I saw an article in the paper about new ipods coming out in august, so i waited until 5th of september, watched the keynote, became an iPod fan. Then i ordered it (iPod touch 16gb) online on 28th i think and got it on oct. 10. And they lived happily ever after
