    I'd like to hear some ideas on Apple's future support for the current generation of the iPod Touch.

    I have a 5 year old G4 tower and it works fine for what I do because I've been able to update the OS when required. Likewise for my Pismo.

    But, my iPod photo hasn't seen an update for a couple years. True its functionality is limited, and planned obsolescence being what it is, that's fine.

    Will this iPod be able to change with the times, or will they stop updating the OS after the next iPod is revealed?

    Obvious one would be more memory.

    Possibly a larger screen.

    The current iPods use Mac OS X (limited version) so we will probably see more updates. However, when the next versions come out, they will have newer hardware which means they will be able to do things that the current versions cannot. So they will still be obsoleted if you will with the new version release -- except for memory upgrades.
