For anyone who hasn't considered what may be the best way to purchase new products like the Touch: Costco. I checked with my local store in Phoenix and they looked it up and will have them on the 20th. Buy one. Enjoy it. If it has a problem, keep it up to 90 days and then return it per their new return policy. If Apple corrects it via a software update, great. If this is a bad batch, then just make sure you're within 90 days and keep returning it until you get a good one. Plus, each model is $10 less than Apple with an EXTRA year of warranty no charge.
