    Is it just me or is Apple really leaving the iPod in the dust. Everything I read that is new and up and coming is for the iPhone. Developer's tools, games, 3rd party apps, commercials, etc. The iPod gets nothing but a bunch of hack attempts and back door service to do what Apple should be doing in the first place.

    Yeah, the new format and interface is nice, but what good is it if you can't run apps to make it more personalized or appealing?

    Not a good way to prioritize the iPod Apple. It is, after all, what got you on the board in the first place.

    Funny, people have been saying the samething about OS X. You do realize Apple pulled developers of OS X to help create that operating system that touch/iPhone runs on. There will be applications on the touch at some point. There's a lot of thought that the OS that the touch/iPhone is using isn't finished in a sense, like Apple wants to get everything the way they want it and add applications like the WiFi Music store before opening it to the public.

    Anything for the iPhone that does not require the bluetooth or speaker/microphone will work with the touch. the reason why it is being said that it is for the iPhone is that is what has had the most publicity so now people know what the iPhone is but they may not know about the iPod touch.

    iPhone=$399 + slice of the $60/month minimum iPlan.

    iPod=1-time charge of maximum $399.

    Pure economics.;)

    And they've alredy got their thumb on the music player ("iPod") market. They're really trying to develop a presence in the phone market.
