when i heard DSi was that it was directly related to the cameras, (i, eye). ipod i didnt think the i stood for anything cept meant personal pod/music player, which it is, it's a personal device.

Who cares, the DSi is far too expensive anyways.

I always thought with the iPod stuff it was "internet." Made sense with iTunes, havent looked into the DSi though.

I guess on a serious note, i in DSi probably does stand for internet too, since using internet is how you get DSWare titles exclusive to DSi.

I'm gonna stick with my internet theory then :P

DS(eye).....the camera....

Like with the GTi - stands for injection in cars, but in most people's minds just means "faster and better".

for Apple its not just the price, also inflated ego. Though compared to other Apple products the inflation of the ego caused by iPhone is small since almost everyone and their dog owns one.
