    Does it bother anyone else when people say iTouch, or do let it slide as a personal preference?
    No one says iClassic or iNano...

    No. Does not bother me at all.

    Only pedantic idiotic fools are annoyed.

    I hate it when people make that screeching noise with polystyrene.

    edit: also have never liked the tv show Lost.

    First time I've heard (seen) it said like that. Bit crap really, probably why Apple didn't call it iTouch in the first place..

    Actually, it drives me nuts. Why is it so hard to say iPod touch?

    iTouch dosen't bother me, but "iPhone 3Gs" (when talking about the iPhone 3GS, not the plural of iPhone 3G) does a lot.

    iTouch is the name of a Touchscreen EPOS software suite, and likely many other things that predate the iPod Touch. But when I see iTouch I think of that.

    I did wonder why a fairly niche software suite became famous all of a sudden.

    Or people who know something else called an iTouch.

    The same with the iPhone. An iPhone was on the market and preceded Apple's product.

    No.

    But this is kinda a taboo topic- read the sticky at the top of the forum.

    So what if, on 9/9, they come out and just call it an iTouch? What then? Will this thread finally be moot? I could only hope for so much.

    It's annoying when you hear that term in the forums. Completely the opposite when the masseuse says it at the local rub and tug. :eek:

    "I touch?"
    "Go on, you know you want to…"

    I presume your masseuse(r?)'s English is somewhat below par?

    :p;)

    I like it: it's easier to type.:rolleyes: 4 fewer characters, including the space.
    In fact, I'd like Touch even better. Or iPT. I certainly can't get worked up over it though.

    That's a useless comment. Why waste your precious time replying in that case when you could be worrying about all those bigger issues..

    The iTouch thing bugs me, don't know why, probably because that's not what it's called..

    Yes, It isn't "correct" and I will correct someone online about it. :rolleyes:

    But if a hot female is talking about her iPod touch I'm not gonna be a jerk. ;)

    Yes I absolutely hate it. I make it a point to correct them when I hear it. Why can't people just call it what it was labeled as by the manufacturer and quit trying to recreate it?
