More Gigabytes, Please
I was all excited about the new Apple touch iPod for about 5 minutes.
That's how long it took me to realize it only had 16 gigabytes of storage space.
Which meant that my music collection wouldn't fit on there. Nor would more than one or two episodes of any TV show.
The Don't Touch iPod comes with either 80 or 160 gigabytes. Which is about what you'd be needing.
Not sure what, if any, the technical rationales are for giving the TouchPod at Nano-esque memory levels.
But I can't help but thinking that there will be a lot of disappointed users who jumped out and bought the TouchPod (and the iPhone, for that matter) only to discover that the storage space is severely limited. Especially for something that's supposed to play video.
