iPod Touch – A case of identity crisis

When is an iPhone not an iPhone? When it’s an iPod Touch. Apparently the iPod Touch is having a bad case of identity crisis. On more than one occasion, it will try to convince you that it is really an iPhone.

If you happen to have one of these new iPods, make sure that it is password protected, then lock it. Now try to unlock it with the wrong password a few times. Uh oh, your iPhone is now disabled! I didn’t know your iPod could lock your iPhone, oh wait, that’s just a typo. Here I thought we’d just found a way to remotely disable someone’s iPhone.

Did you know that your iPod Touch had a camera in it? Well your PC doesn’t. Due to some leftover code from the iPhone, when you plug your Touch into your computer (Mac or PC) it thinks that you’ve just plugged in something with a camera. Seriously Apple, what gives?
