    What is the difference between the two besides storage space? They look exactly the same.

    Yep, sure did. My mate has one (got it when they came out down here and it's still immaculate). It's interesting and very cool to see the progression of the controller. The jog wheel was very cool, it moved smoothly and had a good level of sensitivity. Then the four buttons that curved around the wheel make it look closer to the 4G iPod than the 3G that had replaced it.

    the only thing I didn't like about my 1st iPod wheel was that dirt could get under it and it would get stuck and feel a little "crunchy" with the debri underneath. Also, I could not run without having the hold button on because the wheel would start spinning when I bounced and cause the sound to either get louder or very quiet. The touch wheel truly was a great idea for the iPod.

    I did, for about 9 months (20GB - Top of the line when I got it). Then I had a problem with the headphone jack. I brought it back to the store where I got it and traded it in for a new 3rd Gen 30GB (which I'm still using today).
