Completely off the wall topic but, am I the only one that is anal enough to cringe when people refer to the iPod Touch as the iTouch? I know its dumb and a very simple mistake because of apple's one word name convention for music players, i.e. iPod, but it bugs the heck out of me, your thoughts?

I know lots of People who say "iTouch". I forgive them, and choose not to start a hate-thread about them. Is it that big of a deal? Some people say Potato, some say Potato. I know there spelled the same, but it sounds different. xD

It's an abbreviation, plain and simple. It's analogous to calling a Macintosh a Mac.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Sometimes I will say there's no such thing as a iTouch.

There's no such thing as a "Mac" either, but we use that abbreviation all the time.

And so does Apple. It is an acceptable substitute for "Macintosh".

"iTouch", on the other hand, is not used by Apple.
If it were really abbreviated, then simply "Touch" would be more appropriate.

"iTouch" is along the lines of "BlackBook" and not really an abbreviation at all, but rather a corruption of the proper name.

Ah yes, in order to use a nickname or abbreviation, it must first be blessed by Apple. Sorry, my bad
