The world has moved on. Abby wanted an iPod Touch. We didn't want her to have an iPod Touch because few of her friends will have an iPod Touch, they're expensive, they're highly loseable and stealable and they suffer from Apple's walled garden approach when it comes to exercising any kind of parental control. And I have no doubt that, in a year or two, we'll be buying her a phone - which will be some kind of smartphone, duplicating much of what she could do with it.
So, we disappointed her by buying something that's generally more versatile, reasonably priced, more controllable and not Apply in any shape or form.
