    File this under anal retentive, but iPod touch is spelled with a lower case t, not a capital T. The forum name has a capital T.

    i noticed this, too. i don't think it's anal retentive, it's the correct way to do it. for instance, the mini of "Mac mini" does not begin with a capital M, nor does the nano of "iPod nano" begin with a capital N. there are many examples.

    "iPod touch" might look out of place...as would "Digital audio", unless they all changed...

    ah, but "Digital Audio" isn't the name of an Apple product. "iPod touch" is.

    iPod touch is the name of the product and would not be out of place. Following your logic, the i in iPod, iPhone, iMac and iTunes should be capitalized. Let's not forget the e in eMac.

    I agree with you. The forum titles should be as precise as possible; by having an incorrect capitalization, the forum helps engender further incorrect capitalizations.

    It might look out of place to those who write it incorrectly, but it would be better written properly.

    I agree.

    And now if I can actually get my hands on the real thing - Japan is still a no show (but with a week to go before the '28th')

    Maybe we can start a Forum 'Things Apple Announces and/or Releases But Not Yet Available in My Country'.

    I guess most Posters will be in Australia.

    :p
