On ThinkSecret there is an article about a possible next gen iPod with a touch screen click wheel. Does anyone think this is a good idea??? Lets take a device that scratches to all hell as soon as you breathe on it, and take the one surface area that doesn’t scratch and turn it into the same surface as the rest. This device requires a sheath in order to keep it in order, but of course that can’t cover the click wheel otherwise nothing will work. I wish Apple could focus some of its efforts on developing a surface that doesn’t shred on contact, thus pissing off customers as soon as they buy it….or how about upgrading iTunes to have a consistent UI….or…ugh…people have been asking for this since day one….I give up….
