Those $100 price steps really come in handy if you have trouble memorizing numbers. :-)

32Gb is starting to make the touch interesting. $500 makes it less so. It'll take another couple of revisions before price and capacity hit the sweetspot for me.

I love my Touch but since I already have a 16GB one and I take up about 50% of it with a handful of recent CDs and about 12 hrs of videos for traveling - I won't be rushing to upgrade. Even if I were buying new I would stick with the 16GB one for video and keep my 80gb classic for music.

I'll wait for the next upgrade, I'm still happy with my iphone 8 GB. I do have to watch how much video that I sync.

BTW, The elgato usb stick works great for recording all your tv shows and watching them when commuting.

But honestly I still have about 1 Gig free, and that is with +-2.5 gigs of music on it (one fixed favourite playlist plus one dynamically generated playlist of all 3-stars least played) and 6 episodes of CSI-something and half a meg of user-contributed programs.

If I'm going to travel for longer than an hour or two, I'll bring the laptop along.

Solange bei Apple immernoch 100 USD = 100 EUR sind wird das nix mit uns beiden.

Dirk Müller, 2008-02-05

Apple rechnet nun mit 100 USD = 90 EUR
459 EUR für 32 GB iPod touch, 369 EUR für das 16 GB Modell.

Ja neh, is klar. 599 usd sind bei apple 689 schweizer fränkli, ich werd verrückt, das wäre ein kurs von 1.15. aktuell aber eher bei 1.09 und nach unten tendierend. aber eure ratio von 100: 90 find ich auch nicht schlecht ;-)

jetzt hab ich mich noch verguckt, 839 fränkli wollen die ja. also nochmals:
USD 599 zu SFR 839 gibt ein kurs von *tada* 1.40. das war letztmals im Q3 2003 so hoch, seither gings nur noch runter.
auch ist unsere mwst nur bei 7.6% nicht wie in D bei 19, da wird richtig abgesahnt. wir könnens uns ja leisten.
tja, ich will aber nicht.
