Are you comfortable with where the power/sleep button is?

    First of all, I would just like to say kudos to Apple for the iPod Touch 4G. It is truly the best iPod yet.

    However, I just can't get used to the sleep/power button placement on the right side instead of the left. I'm right-handed, so I'm used to gripping the iPod with my right hand and pressing the button. It's a small thing, but I thought it would be worth mentioning. Anybody else feel this way too?

    I'm right handed, so I use my right hand for the screen. Makes sense to me. To each their own. :3 It is kinda odd that after 3 generations they did this.

    At first I kept reaching for the wrong side, but now it feels weird when I try to use my old iPod

    I actually like the new placement better because I always use my ipod left handed since I always keep my phone in my right pocket and my ipod in my left. Just feels more comfortable for me, but I can see how people that use it right handed could not like it as much.

    I have a bad feeling it'll be very hard for me to switch.... this should be in the "what are you OCD about on your iPod?" thread.
