B.L. Ochman's weblog: Internet marketing strategy, social media trends, news and commentary.: "iPod Touch Should Be Amazing by Version 3.0 and I Can Wait (Really, I Can, I Think) new_iPod.pngThis conversation on Twitter today sums up the whole story of the new Apple iPod Touch, which really does revolutionize computing. And which I'm not buying until version 3.0.

Well, ok, maybe I only wait til 2.0.(I think I can, I think I can....) Steve Rubel (early and enthusiastic adopter of all new technology, who waited in line for his iPhone on the first day of sale): 'It's horrifically rude that Apple cut the price of the iPhone by $200 just 9 weeks after it launched.' Ike Pigott responds: 'the price was the same, you just paid the Early Adopter Tax. You win a t-shirt that says 'I let Apple EAT me.'

Rex Hammock, who endured AT&T iPhone connection hell: 'I guess investors think that Apple announcement was rude, also. AAPL down $7.50. Didn't Newton figure out gravity this way?' I'm waiting for the iPod Touch version 3.0 because everything is a beta these days, and I'm not going to pay the extra $200 or $300 extra dollars for an iPod that'll have more memory, more features, and an even better battery after Christmas.

Still, that is one fantastic piece of electronic wizardry! Who cares about the music and the wireless iTunes store. Gimme a break. I have a 30 gig iPod Video now. I have plenty of music. And my spare iPod is a great external hard drive for backing up my computer."
