Its especially ridiculous for those that have an ipod....music player paid software upgrade ?!
When that first happened with apple I simply sold the ipod touch
As much as people refuse to accept it, there are valid reasons (at least as I understand it) that the iPod Touch is a paid upgrade while the iPhone is a free upgrade. It all stems from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which itself stems from the fall of Enron.

This is not unique to the iPod Touch. There are other Apple products that fall under the S/O Act, as well as products from other manufacturers.

"Wow" is now overused. Therefore, I will use "Magic bananas" instead.
