Any story that sheds any light on an updating iPod Classic has my interest!

Bigger HDD, Lightning Port, etc... Common Apple!

Imagine you're walking and have your iPod in your pocket. A song comes up you don't want to listen to.

This is something that is next to impossible to do with the current generation of iPods and iPhones that are primarily controlled by touch.

Now, let's see if Apple is smart enough to design this to also work as a game controller.
They could do it by headphone (i mean skipping songs)

This reminds me of a conversation I had with a coworker a few days ago about the state of phones and the rising trend of the "Phablet" I pointed out that I am getting bored with the size of my iPhone 5, and despite the awkwardness that would come with a larger screen, I believe that is eventually going to trump the ergonomics of using a phone with one hand.

To me, I would LOVE if Apple just stuck the phone capability into the iPad mini, or something just a little bit smaller. (Being serious). That would introduce a challenge though, how to use the phone with something so large/awkward. Obviously bluetooth headsets pose one solution, but some people don't like talking with those. This clip isn't the answer, but it makes me wonder if there is some way to streamline the design of a "Detachable" portion of the iPad that could double as a handset/phone when disconnected. Anyways, just rambling, but Apple is no doubt watching the "phablet" trend very closely.

this nonvention seems kinda stupid.

also, i wish they would post the patent publication number so we can see the publication ourselves.

that's a really cool keyboard...i wish that video showed the keys inflating and deflating.

as for apple's patent application, a patent can be granted so long as the application discloses something that is different (not necessarily better) than what's out there already.
