    Oh my god! I know! It's absolutely vile, isn't it?
    You know what, I'm going to snap my iPod touch in half, just to show them!

    That's some of the biggest BS I've ever heard

    So he says they didn't include a camera because it's a gaming machine? Then why not make the battery life longer so that we can play a game for more than a few hours before it dies?

    Apple doesn't care about it's customers. They only made minimal upgrades to the ipod touch because they know they can still profit off of them without adding too much.

    i love how people here are butt hurt that the touch didnt get the crappy VGA camera the nano got, and dont even acknowledge the upgrades it did get. higher capacity for the same price, speed upgrades, and voice recognition.

    So he could have put in a camera in it but chose not to because its a gaming machine..Good Lord what a dummy. I know so many people who would have purchased an Ipod Touch if it had included a camera, now they won't be buying one

    Higher capacity is pretty much a given since zune hd will be 16GB for $200. They would be stupid to keep the 16GB at $300, so I don't consider that anything amazing.

    Speed was also pretty much a given, which is why no one mentions it. The speed upgrade is nice, but was really not all that essential. The 2G was plenty fast enough...

    Voice control? That's all amazing and all, except for the fact that the only mic we got was in the ipod earbuds that come with the ipods. So if I want to use my own more expensive headphones, I can't use the mic. And I can't imagine too many people using this feature anyway.

    And I honestly expected a 3.2 MP camera. Not even a cheap VGA one.

    Excuse me for not being a blind apple fanboy. They could have definitely added more features if they wanted to.
