    Well here's what I think:
    It's iPod touch​ peopl​e,​ get it throu​gh your head.​
    Come on now, say it with me; i-​po-d-​to-​u-​ch.​
    You would​n'​t say iClas​sic,​ or iNano​,​ or iAir,​ or iTV (as I saw a poster say in a previous thread).
    What the hell does that even mean?​!​
    iTouc​h.​.​.​ littl​e boys.​.​.​.​
    iTouc​h.​.​.​ little girls.​.​.​.​
    iTouc​h.​.​.​ mysel​f.​.​.​.​

    LADIE​S AND GENTL​EMEN.​.​.​.​ I give you.​.​.​ the real iTouc​h.​

    http://en.pasen.it/product_detail.php?id=32
    http://en.pasen.it/product_detail.php?id=23

    I hope this will make all of you think​ befor​e sayin​g iTouc​h again​.​

    It's really your choice, but there's no need to abbreviate for Pete's sake, it's only 3 extra letters.
    [EDIT]Nobody's going to make you say it right, that's your choice. It's just really annoying.
    I don't care if you say Touch a few times if you're doing a long paragraph or conversation about it.[/EDIT]

    Agreed, iTouch is annoying as hell. The darn thing is an iPod touch. That or touch seems acceptable. Does it matter? No. Is it annoying to hear people try to invent some other name for it? Yes.

    Thank you!
    Yes, I agree, if you don't feel like saying iPod touch then say Touch.

    It's called an iPod touch, and that's how I always refer to it these days. But here at MacRumors I usually call it an iTouch, mainly because I think it's silly that people get so worked up about it. ;)

    Exactly. It's not like people call other iPods iNanos, iClassics, or iShuffles.

    Because some people say 'iPod Touch' and some say 'iPod touch.'
    The correct way is the second one with the word 'touch' lowercases but many people know that.

    well i call it itouch for short you know.. but sometimes i say ipod touch. but most of the time i just say "touch" like "you know the touch can do this and that"
    but my question is, why does it matter how people say the ipod touch. i think itouch is a better faster way to say. the reason people dont say inano, iclassic, is cuz its got a fast name to do. so people can just say nano or classic. but then again same goes with the ipod touch. which i say touch as well

    I think I'd also refer to it as "the touch" in everyday conversation. You dont say iNano becasue the nano is an ipod. This gadget seems like much more than an ipod to me.:apple:

    If you say it, does it really matter if it's "iPod Touch" or "iPod touch"?

    Does it really matter if it seems like more than an iPod.
    That fact remains that it is an iPod.

    Ya, well I suppose it doesn't really matter much if you're talking, but this also applies to typing.

    I'd say it does matter what it seems.

    You asked me what I call it, and why.

    I know, I was just saying how you could call it a PDA, that's kinda... different, and how you said it seems like more than an iPod. XD

    [EDIT]Nevermind, it was someone else who said they call it a PDA.
    I was skimming through it and got confused, sorry.[/EDIT]

    It's definitely annoying. I find the person who says it usually has nothing intelligent to say and are usually noobs or people who "fink typin like dis is kewl.:apple:"

    Maybe people don't feel like typing out "iPod Touch"

    I seriously don't see what the big deal is.

    If you don't like it, then gouge your eyes out everytime you see it.

    You know what's even more annoying than people saying/typing "iTouch"???

    People who complain about it.

    Depends on who you are.
    To me, yes.
    And I wasn't trying to make people say it a certain way, mainly just for survey purposes.
    The only reason why I put that rant is because I had already done it for a MySpace bulletin so I just copy and pasted.

    It's not an Ipod it is an iTouch with ipod features.

    You can not type on an ipod nor connect to the internet on an ipod.
