For Apple, a Holly Jolly Christmas

  1. Observation on the ITouch. This fall I was on a trip throughout Eastern Europe. On one particular occasion, a conference, cell phone and computer usage ground to a halt. I had packed my ITouch as an after thought really and it was a good thing that I did. Surprisingly, it was the only gadget that worked. I was one of the few people out of hundreds who was able to send and receive e-mails and surf the web. Why? I have no idea.

  2. Strange. Most of the analysts foretold the demise of the iPod. It might be possible that since people got the time off from work that downloads increased. More free time would equal more time to download and play games. Is this article implying that lots of Touches were sold for Christmas based on higher download activity? Seems like a stretch. There have been rumors that PSP and DS users have been putting away their devices to use iPod Touches. Yet is seems the diehard users insist that the iPod Touch is crap for game playing. It’s difficult to get any handle on what passes for the truth on the internet.

  3. “Most of the analysts foretold the demise of the iPod.” ‘The iPod.’ Which model? Doesn’t make sense.

    “Is this article implying that lots of Touches were sold for Christmas based on higher download activity? Seems like a stretch.”

    It’s very widely known that the Christmas quarter ist the best iPod quarter. Year after year. Stretch?

    “Yet is seems the diehard users insist that the iPod Touch is crap for game playing.”

    Even the diehard gamers will buy a smartphone/iPod Touch or they are left with a diehard gaming device which fails in other aspects (iPod, Web etc.).

    “It’s difficult to get any handle on what passes for the truth on the internet.”

    Disagree. If you use the net to do a bit of research, you’ll find some pearls in a sea of shit.

  4. iPod Touches download via WiFi, not 3G. iPhones download via 3G, 2.5 Edge or WiFi. Kapeesh?

    As others have stated it’s hard to believe these guys get paid to write disinformation and/or are asleep at the keyboard. Or that no one proofreads anymore.
