    That blog post has many incorrect things. Apple's latest ARM CPU is the A5, not the A6.

    Hmm... Looks like he or she changed it at last minute or something. :|

    Looks fine to me. I've updated the link though for those interested.

    Still says "A6" in some places:

    The article also talks as if there is a iPod Touch 5G, when there clearly isn't at this time.

    Whoever changed it needs an editor . . . bad.

    'A6' is still mentioned numerous times.

    That article also fails to recognize the fact that the latest white iPod touch is not a 5th generation iPod touch. It is functionally identical to the older black 4th generation iPod touch. For all intents and purposes, there is no such thing as a 5th generation iPod touch at all.

    At best, the white iPod touch is akin to the announcement earlier this year to start marketing a white version of the iPhone 4. It happened to be in a white case, but everybody knew that it was nothing new -- it was still an iPhone 4.

    Interesting analysis about the iPod 5G: You won't see it until next September, so caring so early is useless.

    Siri requires data access to function. An iPod does not have a dedicated connection, which means Siri would only function when the iPod was connected to wifi. Thus, Apple wouldn't put Siri on an iPod anyway, since that would lead to a very poor user experience.

    Might happen in a few generations when 3G iPod Touch is released.
