    Multi touch on such a small device is almost redundant!

    the new nano is really annoying for people who exercise. Elimination of the click wheel means you cannot change songs without looking at the device. I find it really odd that Apple apparently got the message with the shuffle and put back the click wheel but then got rid of if for the nano. And they also got rid of video capabilities which is a big feature cut. Now some people are like who watched video on the 3-5th gen nanos? Well they probably didn’t watch movies or tv shows but I subscribed to a bunch of video podcasts and now you can’t. Really poor product decision/design by apple.
