i think having to pay for the update is not cool at all. I paid 500 bucks for this thing already, another 20 is small change, but you would have thought that future updates were included in the cost, just as all previous ipod and iphone updates were.

Quoting ScrubbsYWG (Reply 5): i think having to pay for the update is not cool at all. I paid 500 bucks for this thing already, another 20 is small change, but you would have thought that future updates were included in the cost, just as all previous ipod and iphone updates were.
Same sentiment here - I got my 8GB as a Christmas present (selling for 299USD) but I'm not excited at paying for the update.
If I come into an "extra" $20, I might get it. Some of these features are cool, but they aren't super useful to me.
Mail: Looks cool, but most of my emails are not that important.
Maps: Useful, for sure, but of course, only where you have wifi. Lost in the woods? You're screwed.
Weather: I can settle for looking outside.
Stocks: Don't own any.
Notes: Whatever it is, I'll just remember it, or use my phone.

Well i have just managed to update my touch to have the new software.
I think to be able to purchase the update you need to have the latest software installed on your ipod and you need to have downloaded itunes 7.6.
Just played with it and while it's a bit cheeky to ask £13 for something which should be free the maps and notes tool's are a great feature to have now and make things a lot easier! With these new apps ill be using the touch for a lot more things. Worth the money i think.
