Previous iPods had an Apple chip with the OS on it, along with a seperate hard drive. On the iPod Touch, the filesystem is ON the hard drive, and with all the new models they had the opportunity to fix it, which they didn't. The only benefit I can think of is that you don't have to eject the iPod, but then again I would have preferred disc mode. This whole new design has made jailbreaking all the more possible, and now it's too late for them to turn back. Any thoughts?
