About two weeks ago, I posted an article on Sparkshop comparing the new and old iPods.  After two more weeks of practical experience with the new 15GB model, I just posted a follow-up article.  I cover some details that my original post left out, and even revised some of my initial opinions.

The touch buttons are good for one thing: They still work while covered with a thin sheet of plastic. There was a time when I used PDA screen protectors to cover all sides of the iPod, and I found out that you could use the touch controls even when they were covered up, including the scrollwheel, which was impossible back on the mechanical button models.

I have never owned an older model iPod, but I think that I do like touch buttons more.
