Report: Apple to unveil iPod with ‘none-touch’ technology

Apple is set to introduce its next generation iPod, according to a high-ranking executive from the company’s Asian manufacturing partner, Hon Hai Precision. Bloomberg News reports that at an annual meeting this week in Taiwan, Hon Hai chairman Terry Gou said Apple is about to unveil a new iPod using a “none-touch” concept. Gou did not elaborate further, though he said he expects the company’s revenue to grow at least an average of 30 percent in the next five years based on rising orders from Apple and Sony. Hon Hai owns the Foxconn iPod factories in China, which are at the center of recent labor abuse claims.

Put this together with the movie deals, and I’d say its a screen the size of the 30 and 60 with a screen you can float commands over. And it will finally have bluetooth or wifi to connect to your mac/pc. Hence it would not touch any devices, and the screen would not touch your hands.

Voice activated? come on people, how would you like to say “volume up, up, up up” everytime your favorite song came on
The 6G iPod has to have a click wheel that’s controled by your thumb hovering; i just want to know how it will “click,” i doubt sensors (that will be cost-effective enough to put in an iPod) will be able to sense the slight up and down motion of a thumb-click.
Personally, i just got a 5G ipod and i’m quite content with it, 6G or not (i say the “or not” with utmost sarcasm) i’m sticking with my graduation present :D

i belive my ipod was taking song & lyrics from my brain these songs that never excisted before would then be relesed by already estblished artists.

i also belive that songs and films   “not yet written” can be accssed from a data base from the future,or maybe by phycics? this “data base”
maybe protced by nasa?
