Alright, time to stop feeding off of the collective. it's about time I stopped lurking and reciprocate some ideas. It seems to me that, assuming the rumors have any kind of validity, that a touch-sensitive, full-screen, BT enabled 6G ipod could have a remarkable amount of ulterior uses. Plop an ipod next to your computer and suddenly you have a new 2.5 inch (or whatever) spans of screen real estate. use it as a toolbar for PS. use it as an true "tactile" equalizer in itunes, garageband, or soundtrack. Use it as your inventory in Heros of Might and Magic. Remember Launcher? let your ipod be a bank of frequently used scripts and programs. a secondary dock. a constant open Mail window. Whatever. Gyroxide has a few ideas of his own that touch on this, with something called "miniWidgets," but I think it can be taken much farther. Whether or not Apple will want to do this is up in the air, considering if implemented incorrectly it could really reduce the simplicity Apple strives for. However, 3rd party dev teams and programming enthusiasts could really dig into this kind of opportunity. Just some thoughts.
