    According to Best Buy, you can put a GTX 280 in an iMac.

    Don't listen to them.

    Also, your link is zip code specific, meaning it won't work for most. Command, Shift, 4 and grab the portion of the screen with the relevant info and attach it as a photo.

    OH, btw my zip code is 87109, in case you guys want to see the ad.

    Ok, I'll do that.
    I'll just do a screen shot since I'm on my mom's PC.
    I posted the link as oppose to a pic because I figured a lot of people would have thought I photoshopped it.

    It's a belkin case for the 4th gen not a 4th gen Touch. Apparently belkin has some info on what's coming down the line. Get one and you'll be ready when Apple releases the 4th gen Touch in June 2010. ;):):cool::D

    Well, as we all know, anyone who dares hit a 4 instead of a 2 when typing must be a total moron. And not knowing/caring about every fine detail of iPods? Sheesh, such a person should be fired!

    Well if it was a typo it would have said 4nd.
    I highly doubt there person also accidently hit "th" instead of "nd."

    Nice typo.

    Search the model number on it: f8z364-bki-bby. It comes up with what it should be called.

    Obviously the people putting these ads together are marketing people, not electronics experts.

    It get's Worse! I was at my Best Buy Last week and the printed out the ipods with word art and under the Touch it said....Yup you guessed it

    " i Touch !!!"

    So I asked the Lady " Isn't it called the iPod Touch?"

    and she said, " No it's called an iTouch it's Apple's new iPod like " I " Phone but it's " I " Touch "

    LIKE I WAS STUPID OR SOMETHING!

    So I said, " NO I'm Pretty sure it's full Name is the iPod Touch just like it says on the Apple Website."

    and she said, " Oh well maybe that's the old name."


    FACEPALM.....

    " No it's not the old name nor has it ever been called iTouch, It is just confusing to the average consumer to call a product something it's not. "

    she said, " well did you need help with something? "

    " NOPE.... ( but you do ) "

    Seriously SOME ( not all ) Best Buy Employees are stupid!

    Then they should also know every single TV model and its specs along with phone cases, bluetooth headsets, geek squad crap, etc. Face it: it's ok to not be a fanboy. The people at any given Apple store may have more knowledge of individual products as their selection is far less expansive (also note that their knowledge is still very limited), but that doesn't make someone else dumb. I've met plenty of people that lack knowledge of electronics over the years but that isn't exactly the qualification for being stupid; not everyone needs to devote their life to Apple crap to have a positive IQ score...

    This is... beautiful. The best thing I've seen written on the web for years.
    Signature worthy material, geeks.

    That reminded me of a time a couple months ago. I went into a store that sold nothing but Macs and iPods (though it wasn't an actual Apple Store). I was served by the manager who proceeded to call it an 'iTouch'. I couldn't believe it.

    Trust me, I know how you feel.
    About late September I called Best Buy to see if they had the 2G iPod touch in and they guy had the nerve to say, "I'm sorry, we don't have that iTouch but we do have the older iTouch."
    I almost cussed him out.
    It pissed me off so bad!
    Instead, I said, "wait, you guys sell a knockoff of Apple's iPod touch."
    They guy then stated, "No, I don't believe we sell a product by that name but we do we sell the Apple iTouch. If you wait we may get more in shippents of the iTouch in."

    I then proceeded to hang up.
