    Which name do you prefer? My wife calls hers an iTouch. Personally I can't stand that name; I always call it the iPod Touch.

    That's much better than iTouch, in my book. "iTouch" just seems wrong.

    I call it an iPod Touch, or just an iPod. I hate iTouch. It wasn't named that, and it never will be, so why bother using it, except if your lazy and dont want to type the other few letters and the space... ooooh, what a hardship... :p

    It seems wrong because it is wrong. ;)

    The Apple Ministry of Names has declared this product to be the iPod touch (with the lower-case 't').

    Sure, but I don't have a problem with other shortenings, such as MBA, MBP, etc. Somehow "iTouch" is different. And I couldn't care less whether "touch" is capitalized.

    I've also seen people using iPot. Which is just weird.

    I don't really care either, but if the question is which two is "right," obviously only one of them meets this qualification. I suppose Apple is at least partly to blame for creating such a convoluted naming scheme for their products.

    I call it both depending on whether I really feel like saying that extra syllable. I am usually really anal about this sort of thing but in this case I don't mind people saying iTouch so much because the touch is so much different than than any other iPod.

    i hate itouch.

    any one ever accidently refer to their touch as iphone ever? happens to be all the time.

    no one calls the shuffle ishuffle, or the nano inano so why would itouch even be an option?

    I cringe at the word iTouch

    Nobody calls the other iPods iClassic or iNano do they?

    iTouch is a word some n00b came up with somewhere and all the other n00bs joined in and thought it would be cool to call it that too.

    It makes me almost as sick as Imac, I-Mac, I-MAC, Ipod and iPoT.

    Just for the record iPoT is lame too.

    Is the iPod shuffle called iShuffle?
    Is the iPod Nano called iNano?
    Is the iPod classic called iClassic?

    I rest my case...

    Actually I work for a company that was giving away a Touch in a drawing.

    We looked up on Apple's PR page and it's actually iPod touch with a lowercase "t"
    :eek:

    Annoying

    I also find people calling it an iTouch very annoying, not sure why though. I don't correct people either, in case they point out what a loser i am.

    Yes, and officially it's the "Mac mini."

    Which no doubt someone will repeat in a few posts from now.
