I've been using an iPt since the first gen. Currently I have a 3gen. I've also followed this forum for a number of years. This "season" has been full of speculation, assumptions and rumors. Hence the name: "MacRUMORS". Apple never promised any kind of upgrade. That was all rumor and speculation. If anyone is disappointed it is merely because hopes were placed in rumor and speculation. I've a 3rd gen Touch and I have to admit I was caught up in the speculation. However, I am not blaming Apple for the lack of a device that only exists in my creative and group speculative imagination.
