WTF Apple. srlsy?
So… in order to get functionality that probably should have been included with the iPod touch to begin with… you’re going to charge me $20 for it. Are you out of your effing gourd, Apple?

This is in bad form, especially considering this product is only around four months old, and today’s update was software only and available for free to people who buy the iPod touch today.

I can only hope that the decision to charge for these wasn’t Apple’s idea. After all, if you had an iPod that could almost everything the iPhone could, what motivation would people have to get get the iPhone?

  1. Whose idea, if not Apple’s, could it be to charge for the update of an Apple product?

    I bought my iPod Touch a bit more than a week ago, which means I bought it in January this year, and now they want me to pay 20 bucks for a “January 2008” update, which everybody else will get for free who buys the box today. That’s a great way to hunt customers away, but Apple’s always been like that.

  2. AT of course. They have a vested interest in the iPhone and would probably love nothing more than to see the iPod touch shrivel up and die.

  3. That sucks. FWIW, I’m selling my 8G iPod nano and getting a different MP3 player if you’re interested in buying it. ;)
