I just received my 32 gig touch yesterday and already hate the lack of external buttons. I have a 2nd gen 10 GB ipod I am moving from ('02 model). It still runs like a champ with a new battery. I have muscle memory for the external buttons. Now I am lost. I digress. So, I do things that really warrant external volume controls and maybe a skip button. Does anyone anticipate a 30 pin device that can control volume and tracks ? Can we expect something like this with 2.0 [software] coming up ? I ask these questions because I have had 0 interest in the iPod touch until recently. I am still trying to get up to speed. BTW, I am insanely in love with this iPod !!! She has 1 dead pixel near the middle of the screen but I wont hold it against her iWelcome all thoughts.
