Apple 'loses' iPod calendar

A Touch too much

Security for virtualized datacentres

Our analysis of the prospects and possibilities for the new iPod Touch got readers very excited. Not a single reader used the words "locked-down, overpriced PDA", which would have been a natural retort. But not one person could get excited about YouTube, either.

Now recall that some enthusiasts noticed that early versions of publicity material for Touch featured Bluetooth, which didn't make it into the finished product. Is it losing yet more?

One eagle eyed reader worries it might be. Apple has amended the publicity material from this (still visible in the Google cache) -

Multitouch blurb with calendar

iPod Touch with ...

To this -

iPod Touch without

Faster than light? Not for long

We noticed, and readers piled in.

In the end, the Reality Distortion Field hadn't punctured a hole in the space time continuum, and the metaphor was removed.
