Why not?

We sure wouldn't see it coming.



Unless somebody else posted a thread about this that I missed along the way

    Well, if it had 38-buttons it could double as a calculator too.

    Dual 2.3MHz iPod, that's hot! Thankfully the aluminium will keep it cool.

    Not Aluminum, Apple will revert to using more natural materials.



    It'll have a built in speaker and be able to generate its own power like that of the wind-up radios.



    Engraving will still be available, but only on a small brass plate attached by two pins.



    An optional carry strap is available...

    MacWhispers posted an article a month or so ago saying the new iPod would have an Aluminum back. Several days later they changed their minds said it wouldn't happen. Who knows? (Who ain't telling).

    Maybe it will have an aluminum back and customizable front covers. Or offer them in different flavors again. Or maybe that's too 'last century' for his Steveness.

    Your post makes me fear Steve might think the Alu is "so 3rd millennium". So we'll see no design changes for the next 997 years at the least?
