Your first glance at the newest Apple iPod is likely to cause a double-take. Is it a white Mini? Where are the buttons?

As soon as you touch it, your fingers confirm what your eyes were trying to tell you: Apple has grafted the control surface from the Mini onto its mainstream iPod, making the surface a little larger in the process. Most buyers will agree that this is good news. And all buyers will agree the price drop across the iPod line ($100 less for the top-end 40GB model) is also good news.

iPod historians will note that the first-generation iPod had tactile buttons arranged around the touch wheel. Now the touch wheel is the buttons: When you press the forward, back, play/pause, and menu quadrants of the circle, you get a tactile click. The only thing Apple might have done better (for the Mini, too) is to provide an orientation dot so you can find "up" without looking when the player is in your pocket.

Although its height and width are the same, the new iPod is a millimeter thinner than its predecessor. The weight, however, remains the same, as does the chrome-plated back and the size of the screen.
