iPodification leads to Nothing

I have always argued that Steve Jobs should never touch that iPod Scroll Wheel. Simple things should stay simple. But who am I to argue when he continues his fascinating ‘delete the button’ act with the new iPod Touch: essentially an iPod (and Wifi enabled Internet device, really) with just a touch-sensitive screen to control it?
It’s yet another compelling demonstration of the ongoing iPodification of computers: we start to get used to ‘non computer-like’ devices as the primary access channels to information, transactions and interactions. On one hand, these devices become smaller, flatter and simpler. And on the other hand, we may find ourselves sitting around it, running on it or hitting with it.
