This post started out as an iPod Touch deal: Walmart had the refurbished fifth-gen Touch (32GB) for $179, the lowest price I’ve seen for that model and a whopping $120 less Apple charges for a new one.

Alas, it sold out before I finished the third paragraph. Which is okay, because I wanted to have a discussion about the product anyway: Does the iPod Touch still have a place in the world?

Because, think about it, it’s really the only remaining product of its kind (not that it ever had a lot of competition). Put simply, it’s an iPhone without the phone, a fully app-capable entertainment wafer without the pesky monthly service charge.
