    I really thought that the next iPods would have a touch screen and use hyperlinks as an additional way to move thru your library.

    I mostly use "Shuffle Songs" from the main menu but there are plenty of times that I come to a song and I'd then like to go and hear that whole album or that artist. It would be great to click or tap on the artist or album name with your finger and move right to that spot.

    Or am I just nuts?

    I don't think the screen is big enough for this to fully work though.

    If they were to do a touchscreen iPod, they might as well go for a iPDA ;)

    I agree with Mad Jew, it would require a bigger screen and therefore a total redesign in the iPod, as just adding a bigger screen would either mean a bigger device, or lose the Clickwheel as we know it.

    Its a nice idea! I think a lot of people would love to see it done, but I don't see how it can fit into a music player properly and be better than the one thumb function of the clickwheel. Remember "It's all about the music"!! But who knows, Apple may come up with some revolutionary way to do it! Maybe putting the clickwheel into the screen or behind it or something.
