    I've had an iPod 80Gb for over a year now and felt it was time to delve into the "touch" world. Yesterday, I broke down and purchased a new 16Gb iPod Touch and last night I plugged it in, registered it online and synced it with my iTunes. At the end it popped up a message indicating that a new version on the firmware was available. I clicked on the upgrade button and an order page filled the screen indicating that for the low price of $9.95 I could have version 2!!

    I don't get this, I just paid $400 for a new unit and Apple wants another $9.95 to get it to the latest firmware! Even Microsoft isn't that cheap and allows new purchasers to upgrade free, even it the product was purchased within a month of a new version announcement!
    It's not the $9.95, it's the principal. If they don't want to recall their product (I don't blame them) there should at least be a certificate to allow for a free upgrade with the original receipt.

    Needless to say I'm returning the unit and I'll wait for the new version when it appears next month.

    That's not the point. Audible is right, it's the principle of the matter.
    Why should he have to upgrade when he's bought a new Touch?
    Why should he stay on 1.1.5 and jailbreak, and why should he download 2.0 "for free".

    You're absolutely right, wait until the Touch comes with 2.0 pre-installed....good for you and sticking up for what's right!
