If I recall correctly, when I purchased my iPod touch 2G a few years ago, Apple required owners to pay 10$ to upgrade to iOS 3.0? For those of you who don't remember, 3.0 was a big clincher for complete wirelessness of the iPod/iPhone- especially downloading videos and renting them directly on the device. Do you think Apple will charge money for updates in the future? Such as when iOS 5.0 comes out- I mean, I don't see what could possibly be improved without modifying the hardware, but if there is such a big improvement, will Apple justify requiring money to update? Or will it cause too much of a stir? We'll see when 4.0 comes out imminiently, but it's something to keep in mind.
