    ...that they are greedy.

    Microsoft, the "king of greed" gave a massive update to the Zune 1st gen for free. The NXE for the 360 was also free, and contained a ton of improvements.

    Apple is now more greedy than Microsoft.

    It's called business and making profit.

    I agree, though if apple didn't charge they would probably go into bankruptcy. This is a great moneymaker for them cause every1 wants new firmware when it comes out right?...I thought so...

    But in both cases, the feature set really didn't change. In this case it does. The zune still had FM radio, it's not like it added FM broadcast. The NXE, the menu just changed but the core was still the same. Plus they can get by the new features like Netflix by saying it's a subscription based service to Netflix and Xbox Live Gold.

    get over it its $10... if you can afford an iPod touch and all thr games then you can afford the update.

    It pisses me off cause you pay loads of money on apps, but a decent update to the iPod for a small fee is un acceptable :/

    I have an iPhone and get it free but im payin for the ipod touch version for my ipod 0,0

    Clearly, businesses don't want money. How about you work hard on making a firmware update, and give it away for free?

    Ya, apple is SO GREEDY, that they lower the iPhone price like every year.

    If you don't wanna pay it, stick with 2.0.

    Apple charge because they are a business..... What business gives stuff for free? Why would a business give stuff for free? It defeats the purpose of a business... If Apple gave it away for free, who would pay for the developers to make new firmware?
