Why can't they make remote controller for the iPods that look the one Sony used to have in their MiniDiscs? Like just have really a one line or two linelcd screen with playback control and like song tittle and other minimal information?

Sort of like these:

I mean I know it wasnt that successful but the controller is a good idea. You can have your iPod on your backpack and then the controller clippedto a strap and you never really have to take ur ipod out and what not.

i mean they did have an extended "remote" that conencted to your headphones so u could adjust volume and skip tracks, but the lcd thing was overkillin their eyes

my brother bought the new in ear earphones from apple. the ones w/ the remote

he says the sound is better than the previous in ear apple earphones

however

you need the newest generation ipod to fully utillize the damned things. you cant use the remote unless you have the newest version of each ipod. soooooo theremote is useless to him

i on the other hand, bought another pair of shure se210s
