    I was wondering if anyone had any additional information about the 6G ipods interface. I have seen now both speculation for touch screen, "non-touch screen" Works when sensors detect a finger is placed by screen and interface activates, and voice activation.

    I personally like the click wheel as it allows me not to take my ipod out of my pocket.

    "None-touch" was a bad translation. The next iPod will use a thumb stylus and voice control. But you'll have to affect an American accent to get it to work. And yes, I'm kidding.

    I'm hoping you meant "6G" where you said "5G" because the 5G has been out for ages.

    But seriously, I, nor anybody else here knows anything about how the next iPod will work, whether or not it will just be a screen with no other visible controls or if it will come in six fabulous fruity flavours.

    I changed to 6G. I'm sorry its late where I am... 3am...

    I withdraw my question then. I have been very busy as of late and I just thought I would ask the all mighty forum Gods, as I have not been able to keep myself apprized to any recent developments.

    As long as it's with an American accent, the iPod shouldn't have any trouble with that.

    Aren't we missing one?

    1: Original iPod with spinning wheel
    2: Touch-sensitive wheel and Windows support
    3: Moved the buttons to underneath the screen
    4: Moved the buttons back to the wheel (I have this one)
    5: Colour screen and photo capability
    6: Video support
    7: The next one

    Or am I just dreaming something up? :confused:

    Adding the color screen to the 4th gen was not considered a new generation of iPod. I see why it could be, it's about as much of a change as there was from the 1st to 2nd gen.

    It's funny, I know a lot of people who were new to the iPod and Mac's and thought that the 3rd gen iPod with the 4 buttons was the original iPod. They are surprised when I tell them that it was the 3rd version and I describe what the original (that I had) was like.

    I heard you need a Chinese accent.

    By who? As far as I know, Apple never used "generation" names and instead used "click wheel", "dock connector" and similar names. Did someone just dream up generation numbers or is there actually an official source?
