The third-gen iPod was the first redesign of Apple's music player since its 2001 debut, unveiled along with the iTunes Music Store. The new iPod was eagerly awaited, but a failure of design. Positives: the introduction of capacitive touch instead of a physical wheel. Negatives: everything was touch-controlled, with no moving parts or clickable buttons, and Play/Pause was relegated to an awkward set of LED-backlit touch panels. The case was thinner and capacities were boosted up to 20GB. Yes, I owned one of these, and yes, I thought it was cool...but it was also annoying and impossible to control from a pocket.
