After spending all that money on the Touch and then on cases for it, another $20 doesn't bother me all that much. I guess that should be a reason why I should be pissed, but I'm not. Actually, I don't plan on getting the new upgrade yet. I got the Touch for 2 reasons: the bigger screen and the ability to play iTunes purchased content. The other stuff that I need to be online for I just don't care about. I don't see the need to pay for apps I probably won't use. If I do bother with it, I do have a lot of iTunes store credit I could use.
A hint for those that got theirs at Costco within the last 90 days: you could return it and then buy it again with the update. No restocking fee! I'm not sure that Costco has the upgraded ones yet. Even my local Apple store didn't, as of Monday. They were selling both capacities for $20 less.
Anyway, there is a similar thread going on in the Buzz Out Loud Lounge. You might want to read through those. There are plenty of people in there that are pissed.
My initial reaction? "Early adopters always get screwed."
so i just got my touch for Christmas..i am in love with it.. it rocks.. but i was really pissed off when they came out with this new upgrade.. i mean yeah im happy they did but 20 dollars.. thats so stupid considering that Microsoft updated all of there old zunes for nothing.i just wanted to know what you guys thought of this.
