I have an iPod touch 3rd gen, and with my birthday coming up soon (January), I was thinking about whether or not to switch to the 4th. I was looking forward to the update in October, but since the only thing that was changed was a new color option, I'm wondering if I should just wait for one. My 3rd gen does it's job pretty well, but I'm starting to want an upgrade. But, I know that I'll also be disappointed if I buy a 4th gen only to find that it's updated around half a year or so later and that I could have waited it out with my functioning 3rd gen. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, is buying a 4th gen worthwhile or should I could just wait longer with my 3rd gen?
