iPod Touch Gets A Memory Update Without a Camera


  One of the shockers of the APple event today was that the update iPod Touch was lacking a camera.  The nano gets the camera, but not the Touch?  This was something that was almost written in stone.  Maybe it was due to supply issues?  Either way they gave the Touch a price cut, but added some serious flash memory option which now go up to 64GB.  They also updated the processor speeds inside the Touch.  Th 8GB model is now $199, 32GB $299 and the 64GB is $399.
