When I first heard about the Apple iPod Touch I was extremely excited. I can now get an iphone with out the dumb Phone part. But then the news started flying around about the bugs that plagued the Touch. The first news story was about how some Touches had no OS installed on them. Then there was news that it thinks it’s still an iPhone. The latest word on the street about these things is that some have low resolution screens, so the video looks dark and unimpressive.
With all this bad hype, I wonder what Apple was thinking when they were releasing this thing. You think they would have waited until they worked out all the bugs. But I guess Job’s was in a hurry to stick it to AT&T. He no longer wants his awesome toy to be their new exclusive phone.
If you have been in the dark about this, here is a nice long list of stories about the iPod Touch. Enjoy!

Even with all the news about bugs I still want one, but I am going to wait until after Christmas. Maybe by then all the bugs will be worked out.
Also, when are they going to come out with an iPod that cooks bacon?
