    Random Google search results in the following -

    The whole "Generation Dispute" is odd. Most people refer to the newer iPods as "3g", the iPods with touch wheel "2g" and scroll wheel "1g".

    Here's a list of the iPod "waves". The Orignal prices are always $500,$400,$300.
    iPod (with Scroll wheel)
    20, 10, 5
    iPod (with Touch Wheel)
    20, 10,5
    April 2003--iPod (docking, touch buttons)
    30, 15, 10
    August 2003--iPod (docking, touch buttons)
    40, 20, 10
    January 2003--iPod (docking, touch buttons)
    40, 20, 15

    Docking doesn't mean it comes with a dock, just that it has the 30 pin dock connector at the bottom. The new Docking iPods have 4 circular buttons directly below the screen. The pre-April 2003 iPods have the 4 buttons around the scrollwheel.
