Hey Mary Ellen,

Things change so fast now, to borrow a phrase from the kids, "I-Pod
Touch" is *sooooo last month! (grin.)

I've heard of the I-Pod Touch. Is that the device you're calling the
I-Touch?

Thank you.  I really must be getting old not to have heard of it.  Now
does
it record, take pictures and open cans without leaving a sharp edge?

It's a media device that handles music, videos, web content, and just 
about everything an iPhone does except that it's not a phone. It's a 
touchscreen device that's accessible to both the blind and the sighted 
at about $320 a unit. Once printed, I wager that the tickets will go 
fast since this is a hot technology.

Respectfully,
Jedi
