For some reason, people feel it's too hard to type/say "iPod Touch" That's humans for ya. Lazy to the core.

I almost feel like smacking people when they say it.

It happens at school all the time

GRRRR :mad:!!!

Are you kidding me? That's like saying you get upset when people refer to the ipod nano as just the nano. Why on earth does it bother you?

Well, you don't have to like it, but people can say whatever they want. If you want to get nitpicky about the analogy, then saying iTouch is no different than saying MB Pro. One part of the name is contracted, one is not.

I've yet to hear a good reason why you would get upset over people calling it the iTouch. In fact, many people think that iTouch is a cool name.

My friends get a kick out of saying iTouch around me because of my reaction. It's an iPod, people. Let's acknowledge that fact.

Gotta admit, it bugs me too.

Just to keep things in perspective, it's not like I'm going to go postal over it or anything. But, we're on a forum. Sometimes simple pet peeves are discussed on forums. No biggie.

i almost bought an ipro, but the wait for the new model was killing me. so i ended up getting one of the new ibooks, the 2.4ghz one, the white one. but i ended up not liking it.

i really like my ipod touch though. i cant wait for the isdk.

Yeah, this sorta bugged me for awhile. But if you think about it, in my opinion, iTouch is a pretty cool name. I like the way it sounds. Better than MacBook Air..

Add me to the list of people that need to call the thing an iPod touch. It is always the Windows people that say the name wrong! :mad:

Which is why I call it an iTouch ;).

To be honest calling it an iTouch is like calling Mac OS X Mac oh ess ex. rather than Mac oh ess 10.

After owning an iMac and an iPhone for six months... my ol' lady still calls it OS Ex. Even at the Genius Bar. Kinda embarrassing.

For God's sake.

'iPod touch' sells itself. End.

There is no need for the branding to reflect 'touch' in any way.

I could care less about people calling it 'iTouch' 'iPod Touchable' "The touch' 'iPt' 'ipt' '2/3 iPhone' or any other variation which has reered it's head due to lazy language.

Actually looking back, iPod Generation 6 (iPod G6 - or just G6) would of been perfect.

Really, your not telling me the one overriding factor which made you choose to buy iPod touch over say, a nano, was the fact it had 'touch' in the branding? - it wasn't. I'd like to be it was based on hardware capability including storage/touch controls as well as software potential. Yes, the iPod brand has been expanded, but iPod touch is now a different brand to iPod. Just as iPod has acquired different names since it's launch due to abbreviation, iPod touch has too. It's a sign that the branding it strong, as we all know iPod is, it's recognized the world over.

So lets give people who are using these abbreviations a break, Yeah?

.. and maybe start caring about REAL issues, like ... O .. i don't know, Poverty?

Let this be an end to a pathetic excuse people like to call an 'issue'.
