The Nyko iTop is the answer for those who complain about the iPod's lack of a dedicated volume control. It feels slightly flimsy when mounted on the iPod and sometimes slips off when pulled from a tight pocket, but for $19.99, it makes a nice addition to the iPod-accessories category. You can also opt for the Apple in-line remote control, which provides the same remapped buttons for volume and track control and is very useful when the iPod is stashed away--though it costs $39.99.
