Do you hate it when people call it "iTouch"?

The official name is "iPod touch" and i understand that sometimes people want to call it short "iTouch", but i hate this name, i prefer calling it iPod, because it's in fact an iPod, i guess people don't call it iPod because they think iPod is the shuffle, nano which is only used for music.
i think iPod is a good name, and i hate "iTouch" because it sounds like you're touching someone lol, can't really explain but i don't feel good about it.

but then again apple should change the name of this iOS device, ipod usually means "music"

Why on earth would one care? It's just like Mac for Macintosh- everyone knows what it means, and it's shorter.

I think "Itouch" is a cool name. Differentiate it from all the remaining pods. I think by saying Ipod, people refer to Ipod nano or classic because i just call my Ipod shuffle "the shuffle".

Still i dont think Ipod touch is too long of a name to call.

I like to call it that, so no, it certainly doesn't bother me when others do too!

I don't mind if people call it "Ipod, Itouch, itouch and Touch (I don't know all the terms so incase I forgot some)" but when people call it just "touch" that I do hate since it make it harder to read fast.

When people say touch that make it harder to know what the person is talking about like it could mean touch screen depending how the user writes.

The point is saying touch can be confusing and can cause misunderstanding, at least Itouch there is no confusion and to some extend Touch since the capital T would make it obvious that the user refers to the Ipod touch, but touch that can be confusing since the user could mean anything.

It helps me determine if the person is a Noob or not. Other ways include when someone types "MAC" and Apple computer.
