    So, humor me for a second, but I don't get how that whole line of argument is a negative slur. It's like being told, "Crikey! You look just like Angelina Jolie only much prettier!" as the person making the declaration sniggers childishly behind an upheld hand while pointing rudely at the accused with the other hand.

    I mean, seriously, how is that derisive? I just don't get it. The logic doesn't parse.

    A "giant iPod" is a worthy accolade in my book.

    I'd rather have a giant iPod than a small iPod, any day! Better for my old eyes!

    Fanboys only say it to get a rise out of us! You have to get a supply of put downs ready.

    I'm sure you guys can come up with a few!

    I think most of us "big iPod touch" owners take it as a compliment.

    This is a question that needed to be asked.

    Well if a hater does ask the stupid question, just say "I like the iPod Touch, so I definitely love a bigger version". ;) Or, use the Angelina Jolie expression. Or take it further if the asker loves Android: "You like the Samsung Galaxy S, and you like the Galaxy Tab. How is that different from iPod Touches and iPads?" Haha, see their reaction.

    Not sure about the comparisons.

    My iiPad can display pictures, play music, and connect to the net with WiFi. I can install games and other applications, play video, use headphones, spend cash on cool cases, use a stylus, and it is thin; made of metal and glass. And it fits into my briefcase.

    Lets see any old iPod do that!

    No wait . . . my God, not only do I own a giant iPod, but I also own a tiny iPad.
