    I live in boston and they JUST put up new posters on our mass transit system featuring the usual blacked-out crazy dancing people afore crazy backgrounds with ONE DIFFERENCE. each one had the iphone/ ipod touch shape instead of the classic shape. The poster said nothing but "iPod" and the usual logo. A sign of something to come?

    No, it's just advertising for their current products.

    But I think it represents a shift. They are now considering the ipod Touch as simply the "iPod".

    It is an "iPod"... It's also their flagship iPod, so I really don't see what the big deal is with putting it in an ad. I see the same stuff on mass transit lines whenever I travel.

    basically I suppose, the same way an iMac is an ipod. The Touch and iPhone are mobile computing platforms. That's the only reason I have a Touch. There are better media players out there. I bought my wife a 16gb Touch for her upcoming birthday because of the apps that will be available for it a day later. She's got a nano and rarely bothers with it.

    If Apple calls it an iPod, why do you think it should be called something else? It just is an iPod, that does other things besides playing music and videos.

    The iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch are all considered iPods. Hence the "iPod" at the beginning of each title. This isn't rocket science here, all iPods have always been considered an iPod.

    clearly this isn't a "marketing forum" I've stumbled upon. They would never do the same for the nano/shuffle and both are "ipods."

    Let's just wait and see what the future holds.

    They consider all their iPods the "iPod". That's what they're all referred to as. If it was that same poster, with the blacked out guy with an iPod nano in his hand, it would still say "iPod". Every iPod is an iPod. It's part of the iPod platform, and there's multiple iPods.
