You don't say...
Gosh, do you really think that the iPod might one day copy LG and go touchscreen? Brave, brave guess...
The personal multi-media category is a crowded one and has risen to a very high point in terms of consumer awareness. However, it is still relatively young and product feature development is coming thick and fast. A bit of fresh thinking can go along way. And LG are as fresh as they come.

I've always hated touch screens. I have a first G ipod (old school, with the hardware buttons and scrolly wheel), and I loved it until my battery gave the goat last year. The reason? I could control it from inside my pocket. A subtle press against my pocket and I could change songs, volume, everything. It's probably saved me from getting mugged once or twice while walking around downtown. The next media player I got is the same thing.. it was a bit older when I bought it, but it has buttons on the front face, so I can control it from my pocket without an annoying little remote (ala sony). I don't see the fascination with touch screens.
That 80's pop band 'Ah Ha', to whom I presumptiously presume you are referring in the title of the article, had not one, but indeed two hits.
The first being "Take on Me", and the second (from which the 'Touch Me' reference is surely drawn) "The Sun Always Shines On TV"
You, Sir, stand corrected, and ... I'll fetch my coat.
I thought the reference was to the Divinyls, who had the lyrics "I touch myself, I want you to touch me." They might have been early 90's, but... who cares?
Also, the "Sun Always Shines On TV" doesn't take away from Ah Ha's status as a one hit wonder. Even Vanilla Ice had more singles than Ice Ice Baby, but he's still a one hit wonder. Nobody remembers the names of those singles. Kind of like Ah Ha.
I assumed it was a reference to Sam Fox's "Touch Me". Or perhaps even Soft Cell's "Tainted Love".
a-Ha, as any fule kno, had several hits, including "The Living Daylights", "Hunting High and Low"... and all the others. Except in the US, where they only had "Take on Me". They were not butch enough for the US.
I'm eagerly awaiting the Creative Labs Zen Sonic Boom Boy LXG-AL Alpha.
