    Those lines of text were taken from Apple's website. What annoys me? It's the fact that the refer to the iPod nano like it's some special being. No longer is it an object, it's it own sentient being.

    How a normal person would say something:

    The iPod Nano holds 16GB

    How the freaky Apple people would say it:

    iPod Nano holds 16GB


    I'm really disturbed by the way they refer to iPods... and they talk the same way if you watch their demonstration videos.

    OMG

    They partition about 1GB off, for safety precautions.

    So you haven't ever bought a Hard Drive, Computer, Gaming console, anything that contains Data storage in byte form? Box/Ad advertises how much space it holds. But wait till you get home!

    Haha yeah I found a "broken" external 500GB hard drive.

    I took it apart, put the actual hard drive into my computer, and I was really excited that the hard drive worked, but it was only 480GB

    Lol, you always get a little less.. it has nothing to do with Apple being 'greedy'.

    Yeahp, but sometimes people (I did)
    misinterpret it as 'the iPod Touch holds 16GB of music/apps/etc.'
    whereas it's just 16GB.
    Yay 100th post

    I agree. On the subject of formating and such, My 64 gig only has 60. They don't need 4 gig partitioned. The same firmware on my 2g older touch only has .9gig partitioned.
