Here's the reason why you shouldn't get mad for buying the iPhone Apps: Lets say you bought a MacBook and it came with 1GB of RAM and then a few months later, they release MacBooks with 2GB of RAM stock (for the same price they were charging for the old ones). Should the people who bought the first MacBook get angry and demand Apple to give them the extra 1GB of RAM for free now since it "should" have come with 2GB in the first place? No, people deal with it... it's an upgrade and Apple doesn't have to bow to the people who bought the first ones with the lower specs... that's just the computer industry for you. Now, with the iPod touch... it's the SAME situation. You bought something... you KNEW what you were buying and now they have an upgrade that they are including in the new iPod touches but, the old ones have to pay for the upgrade... that's what you get when you buy technology... Apple doesn't have to bow to you... you bow to Apple. I'm not mad about this at all. I think Apple has the right to charge their customers for the 5 new software Apps. I know you can hack it and get them for free... but, that's not really legal and not everyone knows how to hack their iPod touches or wants to void their warranty. I embrace the change, and I don't care about 20 stinking dollars.... it's just the way it goes. I'm not an Apple fan-boy though because I don't always agree with everything Apple does but, this particular case... I don't mind for some reason.
