Apple introduced a new, stripped-down member to
the iPod touch family
recently -- which you might have missed if you weren't paying close attention to Apple's online store.
Apple added a 16GB iPod touch for $229. The new version loses a few features found in the latest generation of the iPod touch family, such as the rear-facing 1080p camera and the assortment of colors (this new version only comes in black and silver).
However, the 16GB device does still hold key features like the 4-inch Retina display, the dual-core A5 chip, 720p front-facing camera, and even the Apple EarPods.
If you can't do without the rear-facing camera or the pretty colors, there's the 32GB version for $299 or the 64GB version for $399.
Apple is likely introducing cheaper models in an effort to gain a larger customer base and compete with its main rival -- the Android-powered Samsung.
Apple was also likely looking to fill the price gap between the $149 iPod nano and the $249 iPod Classic. This new 16GB version seems to have replaced the 16GB 3.5-inch Touch that had been selling for $199.
Also reportedly forthcoming in the cheaper Apple product line is a more affordable iPhone, but there's no word on a release date quite yet.

No, no, I'm in IT. We do real work here. I'm doing 10 hours today with only minor cyber-loafing. There are plenty of white-collar jobs were you actually have to work.

There's no way in the world you can prove to me you have worked your full hours every single day. Why? because there's going to be days where you don't have much work. Full work hours only happens in places like China where you're practically slaves to your employer.
