4 inch iPod rumors

Saw it on macrumors.com as a thinksecret scoop. I never really put much credence behind thinksecret rumors so take it for what it's worth:

They also discuss a possible movie service from iTunes coinciding with it in the March/April timeframe.

Although I've been down on all the hype that got inflated around Apple's last announcement, this is in the timeframe of Apple's 30th anniversary and I've said all along that Steve's ego won't let it go unnoticed without a really special birthday present. So... fingers crossed.

no touch

a 4 inch touch screen is the dream of every person who doesn't own a shiny ipod and the nightmare of every person who owns a scratched up ipod.

That would be even better than the fake true video iPod. Happy

Man, I REALLY need to start saving my pennies. Guess the family and I will be eating Ramen Noodles and Mac and Cheese for some time to come. Happy

It's one of those products

Where the coolness factor would just be so friggin' high, I'd purchase it in a heartbeat no matter the cost. I ALMOST did that with the PSP and I'm not even a big gamer (mostly just Warcraft since the Mech Assault sequel destroyed the one console game I ever loved. D*MN YOU DAY ONE STUDIOOOOOOOOS!!!!!!!!)

Indeed.

Merely seeing it would invoke a trance-like state in people.

I was thinking (different)

You know, if this is true, one way to solve the whole greasy finger prints on the screen is to use a Blackberry style jog dial on the end.

You'd still see the graphic overlay on the screen, animating your movements, but you wouldn't have to touch the screen at all.

I don't think a little jog wheel is necessarily "mac-like" so I doubt if it will happen, but it sure would solve the issue.

Or ..

Why couldn't they just move the entire click wheel and make it an in-line unit? Something along the lines like the Griffin PowerMate; not as humungous, but smaller and would fit in the hand.
