    so i was thinking of a maybe cool idea of having the 2G volume rocker buttons and turning them into a next and back buttons so when you are playing music you can skip tracks...
    what do you guys think?
    when the jailbreak comes out of course...

    :S, i think that the volume control is more important. If you think about it this way, if the public wanted next/forward buttons, Apple would have implemented it in the device...but customers wanted external volume control

    true that.

    what if you had an option of enabling and disabling this function?

    I want this too! But of course, to be able to customize it to whatever I want.
    Maybe to open a certain app, or other useful ideas.

    I'm not sure if the 2G speaker controls control headphone volume as well?

    What about when you are in your car, and the screen is off?

    Why would the screen be off?

    I thought that it could only be used w/external speaker.

    My bad.

    Why would it be on? I can't look at it and drive at the same time!

    So, to save batteries of course.
