It seems ever since the Wii controller details were unveiled, everyone is trying to steal their motion-sensitive idea. The latest player to apparently enter that group is Apple. Everyone is hanging on to every word that's said about the next generation iPod, which is tough because not much has been said.

However, there's an interesting new nugget of info that could mean drastic changes for the interface of your next Apple MP3 device. According to a statement from the CEO of the iPod manufacturing company Hon Hai, there is an idea for the next iPod to have a "none-touch" concept.Most of the rest of the statement was corporate mumbo-jumbo, leaving that hyphenated phrase up to crazed bloggers to speculate about. Potentially, this could mean that all you need to do is tilt your iPod to scroll through your songs. I picture some problems here, though, considering how many people run while listening to their iPod.
