    Who all thinks it would be a good idea for the iPod software to allow you to "invert" the iPod's screen, so that if you hold the iPod with the Click Wheel at the top, the screen reads correctly? The way the nano's armband is designed, the screen is upside-down from the wearer's perspective. It would be nice if you could flip the screen's display.

    Any new feature is great. Can't be hard to do, most Pocket PCs have a screen orientation sensors in them.

    I'd love to rotate it 90º. How cool would it be to use a horizontal iPod. :cool:

    It doesn't even have to be an orientation sensor thing... just an option in Settings to Invert Screen.
