    Why is it that so many out there get so hung up by people using iTouch instead of iPod Touch?

    Haven't any of you heard of an abbreviation?
    Do you all say television instead of TV?
    Do you all write okay instead of OK?
    What about the use of the word phone instead of telephone?
    Even worse, I bet you use hoover instead of vacuum?
    Do you google or do you search?

    So what if somebody abbreviates iPod Touch to iTouch. Let them! You know what they mean, so quite being so pedantic - you aren't bigger or cleverer than anybody - infact the one thing you are is more childish!

    I try not to ever type "OK," opting to type "Okay" whenever possible.

    Shouldn't that be Ipod Touch?
    Perhaps your device is Jailbroken? Look, even google agrees with that...

    Stones? Glass house?
    Pot? Kettle? Black?

    You mean that everyone who flames somebody else for using the term iTouch is actually confused thinking that they are talking about a different product?

    Wow, I really feel sorry for these people if they actually believe that somebody has come to an iPod Touch forum and is asking about a Logitech Keyboard!!!!

    Don't ask me, ask the other folks around the Forums and see what kind of answers they will shoot back... Personally, i still call it the iPod touch anyway, what's the big deal with typing three extra letters and a space?

    I don't see the problem with typing those extra 3 letters.
    Before I bought mine, I thought it was an iTouch - seems logical with iPod and iPhone, why not iTouch?

    I would just like to know why there are so many people who have to flame people who call it an iTouch - just seems childish to me and not really the best way to behave when people are merely asking for help.

    I don't like beggars asking me for money but I ignore them, I don't yell abuse at them!!!

    Must be due to that Logitech keyboard that stopped Apple from calling this iPod the iTouch (copyright issues, who knows?)... Somehow most ppl still call it that though...
