So, after Steve's announcement, I immediately ordered a 64GB iPod touch. Then, when I got home, I canceled my iPhone 3G service to use a Motorola Razor go-phone. Then, on Sept. 14th, I got my iPod touch. I used it for a few minutes and realized that it has the interlace/scan line problem (here, here, here, here, here) on the screen. Also, the home button was raised up above the glass surface a little bit and it left a sharp edge if you ran your finger across it. I figured... perhaps I got unlucky. So 2 days later, I went to Best Buy and picked up a brand new iPod touch 64GB again.... now I'm out $800. I figured... if the one from Best Buy is good, I'll just send the first one back to Apple. Turns out, the one from Best Buy was actually worse than the first one, but the home button was much better. I thought... perhaps I'll just live with this one. So I sent the first one back to Apple for a refund. Anyways... I used the Best Buy one for a couple of days and realized that I couldn't stand looking at that ugly screen. My iPhone 3G has a perfect screen (no scan lines or interlacing effect), so I took the go-phone sim out of my Razor and stuffed it in my iPhone 3G. Come to find out, it works perfectly. Then I called AT&T and got unlimited texts and now I didn't really have a need for an iPod touch anymore, so I brought it back to Best Buy. While I was at Best Buy returning my 2nd iPod touch, I decided what I *really* wanted. What I was trying to get was a decently fast portable computer. Then it HIT me. I need a full blown notebook computer! That's what was missing to bridge the large gap between full blown Mac Pro desktop and an iPhone. So anyways, while I was at Best Buy, I bought a $1200 13" MacBook Pro. When I got it home, I was excited to set it up, but the excitement ended when I realized that the screen wasn't as good as I was expecting. The screen displayed a weird dithering/meshing pattern if you moved anything around on the screen. Threads about it here and here. My brother has the previous generation 13" MacBook and his screen looks really good, so I convinced him to trade with me. There are only subtle differences between the two and since I have a Mac Pro, I wasn't all that worried about the extra features of the 'Pro. I'm only missing Firewire, SD card slot, 7 hour battery, illuminated keyboard and 260Mhz. So the point of this story is this: I thought I wanted an iPod touch, but I really wanted an unrestricted portable computer. Now my digital life is complete. For the extra space, I've got a 120GB iPod classic that I bought last year. I can't stand display issues. I work in the graphic design field and I'm very picky about screen quality. Coming from a perfect iPhone, to a less than perfect iPod touch screen was too hard for me to handle. Now I have: Perfect iPhone 3G (2.2.1 of course), perfect Mac Pro (with Apple Cinema Display), perfect iPod classic and perfect 13" Unibody MacBook. The point of this thread is: Until Apple can be consistent with their mobile display quality, I don't know if I'm going to buy another iPhone for a long time. I returned my iPhone 3GS 3 times until I eventually gave up and returned it for good. It took me 4 tries to get this iPhone 3G and I bought 2 iPod touch 3rd gens and that was enough for me. Am I too picky? Yes I am. I'm an Apple customer. As far as I know, there isn't any other computer company out there with customers as picky as Apple users. I believe Apple made me this way by over-delivering quality in the past.... now it's almost like all of that is going down the tubes.... so yeah, I'm going to keep returning their products until I get something I'm happy with.
