Well, after trying to think of how the iPod could possibly function without touch, I thought of this. I know it seems like BS, but it's the best I could come up with in 5 minutes. Ok, imagine the iPod, and imagine it with the full-screen package, but instead of touching, you can press buttons from a distance. Like imagine the iPod has little hairs that stick up on the surface, and you can press buttons from say an inch or 2 away. Get it? Kinda high-tech, but they might have done it.
