Jason Snell Reviews the New iPod

Jason Snell:

Previously I used a third-generation iPod, and it’s taken some time to get used to the click wheel and (especially) the act of physically clicking on the wheel and the center button. But it’s also been a nostalgia trip, since the experience of using this new iPod is very much like the first two iPod generations. In fact, in some ways I view the third-generation iPod as an evolutionary dead-end. If you tried a second-generation iPod (a touch-wheel with the circular ring of buttons at the compass points) and then switched to a fourth-generation iPod, it would be a pretty seamless transition.
