    ^They want to make the headphone jack Slightly smaller.. We won't notice the difference at all.

    WAIT I smell a trap coming from apple if the implement this..
    Wouldn't we have to only use Apple stock headphones that come with that device? And the slight difference would be noticeable when trying to use a different pair of headphones

    Use the stock earbuds only? Why the hell would they do that? Nobody would buy an iPod if that happened.

    It's a new headphone jack in the iPod, not the plug on their headphones. :/

    I don't understand how this works, but I sure as hell can't wait to shave a few nanometers off the current design.
