Kids want iPads this holiday season
According to a new Nielsen survey, the iPad is the most-wanted gift among kids aged 6-12, followed by the Wii U. Kids also want the iPod touch, iPhone, Kinect, and computers. What don't kids want?

What do you think of the new iPod touch?
The latest iPod touch comes in five colors, shares the iPhone 5's 4-inch Retina display, and includes a 5-megapixel, panorama-capable camera, the Siri artificial-intelligence app, Apple's new EarPod headphones, and iOS 6. But at $299 and up, is this new iPod a touch too expensive?
