    I stopped reading after your first paragraph was still trumpeting a 64GB Touch in a device that you know only has a single chip.

    What is the point of arguing about Apple should have done? They didn't go that route, you know they didn't go that route, so you have to deal with what is available now. By your argument, why not say, "They have should have included 16 chips with 8GB chips for 128GB", but as stated, all that add more issues. You can't just focus on the capacity. I bet once a 128GB Touch does comes out you'll be wanting and expecting a 512GB Touch. \

    Introducing the 32GB iPhone? New LED Aluminum MacBooks, New Aluminum LED iMacs? There will always tricks of releases that you can do to inflate your sales revenues.

    fair enough but when you take the top tax rate from 70 to 28 during your tenure you've obviously applied economics in a different method than those previous to you and thus your policies become remembered as a "breakthrough" so-to-speak. Perfect example - the iPod! Apple wasn't the first but they were the first to really challenge the status quo and push it to the people.
