    A lot of the time it's not even about finding a shorter name but a lot of people really have the wrong notion that it really is called "itouch".

    Good to know that I am not alone in finding this truncation irritating.

    its just the same way when people started calling the Macintosh as the Mac. Language is dynamic, so let it be.

    some other example - Coca Cola to Coke, the Refrigerator to "Frigidaire" (although generally, it reverted back). Companies take note of these and even adopted the new common term for their product -- and then registered it as their brand.

    I've always been actively correcting people who say iTouch as opposed to its proper name iPod touch.

    some Filipinos feel social when they use some terms like these... what i hate is those pa-feeling social aka social climbers using terms like these... "We're goin' to emba later, wanna come?"... "I went to Bora last summer..." sheeesh....

    Look at all the iPods Apple has released through the years with a modifier after the main "iPod" product name - iPod Video, iPod Mini, iPod nano, iPod Touch, etc.

    When we get tamad to say the whole name of the iPod Mini, we just call it "the mini". Not an iMini.

    When we get tamad to say the whole name of the iPod nano, we call it "the nano". Not an iNano.

    So WHY do people take the liberty of bastardizing the iPod Touch's name into "the iTouch"??? It's irritating and am so pleased to know there are this many of you who feel the same way I do. Rrrgh!

    Not to worry, there will be a product called iTouch sooner or later. If this writer is to be believed, pretty soon: Why Apple's iTouch Tablet Will Become Its Flagship Product.

    Yes dynamic indeed. Just like Federal Express, becoming FedEx and a noun, too. Like paki-FedEx mo naman ito or paki Xerox. Sabi nga ng guro ko sa unibersidad, pag-papalawak daw iyon ng kawikaan. ...but i correct people who say iTouch, and i'd say, "you mean iPod Touch? (sabay batok)
