5G vs 1G iPod

1gvs5g_1 I’ve uploaded a few pictures to Flickr comparing my old iPod with the new 5G video iPod. Amazing what a few years can do for a product.

It’s great that Apple has returned to the same look as the original iPods. I can’t say that I miss the mechanical scroll wheel – the reason I bought a mini iPod orginally was the form factor- I think the click wheel is a really elegant implementation. Plus, I really hated the 3G iPods with the buttons above the wheel.
