iphone/ipod shuffle backlash

Buttons and knobs

Give me knobs and buttons any day over the virtual

I've been saying this for a while and this is why I will not use an iphone... I feel like Apple is making the same mistake that music/audio companies made in the late 80's/early 90's with hardware and interfaces. All based on menus and a lack of the tactile.. Nowadays, you can see the trend in music devices has shifted away from all of that and back to a more analog sensibility and sometimes even going back to pure analog...

This gallery on one of the most read tech blogs is a good example of this slow building backlash.
