This must be old. I've had a 4th gen Ipod touch since October 2010. Bought it at Costco ...
Confirmed, Ipod 4g came out in 09/2010 ....
There's nothing old about it. This is the current model. If you want reviews to be published the week the devices come out, talk to Apple to put us in their reviewers list. Easy as pie. Not.
?? $200 for the device the day it is released. ,... ? Only review free devices?
YOu probably pissed Steve off like Leo Laporte did a few years ago :-)
Yeah. What's the point of reviewing a device 6 months after it is released?
The iPod touch is a killer product for Apple though. At $250, it is a third of the price of the unlocked iPhone, with almost all of the same features. Wifi is in many places, so you can make calls with Skype or Facetime for free. You can play all the same games as the iPhone (which makes it useful even to Android users, as the game selection is so much better), and it runs almost all the same apps as the iPhone as well.
I got my wife an iPod touch for christmas and she loves it for the games, apps for learning german, and facetime when I'm travelling to my iPhone. She doesn't want an iPhone, she just wants her regular cell phone and the iPod touch for entertainment.
I am assuming (so I could be wrong), that the author got the Ipod recently (like in the last 3 days), and posted a review on it, in order to keep the ipod.
I'd second that. There really isn't any point in doing a generic ipod touch review at this point. There could be some merit if it had been hacked and used to control an army of zombie catfish or run haiku. But, I would feel a bit silly doing the review myself. Like a dad giving his non children having 20 something daughter tickets to the justin beeber. I understand what you were trying to do, just really late and without much thought.
What's the point of reviewing this now, you ask?
It's shipping. It's selling. There are people out there wondering if they should buy one. A year from now people will be offered second-hand models and will want to research the 4g model's virtues and faults. Not everybody lives on the cutting edge all the time.
And a hundred years from now techno-archaeologists will be researching what their distant ancestors thought about the thing and writing dissertations about it. [Hi there youngsters, did you put virtual flowers on grandpa's grave today?]
And anyway, it's their site, they put on it what appeals to them. If it does not apply to your life, don't click the link. How hard is that?
