    Christmas Gift Thread/ Ipod Touch 5 Question

    So I am picking up a gift for someone and they want an Ipod Touch

    I did a little reading on the Ipod Touch 5th generation and it looks like it has a bigger screen like the iphone 5 and has siri as well. What else does this thing have? I don't want to drop $250+ on this thing so was wondering if there are any Black Friday deals on this

    Also what is the difference between the 4th generation all the way down to the first Ipod touch.

    If I dont get the 5 I assume the earlier versions are MUCH cheaper and arent much different than the 4 etc

    5 vs 4 - Bigger screen, bigger price, more memory std.

    Tough call - I've bought 5 of these things now - they are sweet - no wrong answer really - pick a price point and buy the one that fits the price. The 4 will still be a good choice - has facetime and all that - and will save you 50-100 bones - if that is a consideration - else just get the 5 - and you will be a hero - since it is the hot new thing in ipod world.

    btw - You cannot get less than a 4 - and still make it worthwhile from a gift satisfaction perspective.

    Walmart is opening up at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, and they are the only ones offering ... Here's how it works: If you're inside Walmart on Thanksgiving night between 10 and 11 p.m., you are guaranteed an Apple iPad 16GB with Wi-Fi for $399 with a $75 Walmart gift card,

    I will probably be there then. Garmin GPS are a great deal there too

    What about straight up cameras. I need to pick up a camera that can zoom 30-50 yds away and can pick up details of birds etc but I am not looking to spend more than 200 or so
