    Why did Apple decide not to put in some kind of visualizer on the touch? It gets boring on the play screen with nothing there except for album art or nothing at all (like most of my techno music).

    It would have been relatively simple to include a small equalizer type visualization or anything like that on the touch. It should even be easy to add in a firmware update.

    What are your thoughts on it? It would be an optional thing of course.

    Because

    It will drain the battery life if you just stare at the visualizer, just imagine "Music Video"
    Remember: music = 22hrs
    Video = 5hrs
    Visualizer =~ Video =~ 7 hrs

    i think you got that a little wrong there picaso... video != 22 hours

    video = 5 hours according to Apple.

    I had a mp3 playe that had a mp3 player that had a visualizer (just a basic bar visualizer) it affected batter life just as much as the now playing screen did pretty much, the main drain was the back light being on not really the visualizer itself.

    I don't think the visualizer would make a huge difference. My touch spends most of its time plugged into my car anyways so I never worry about the battery running out.

    It should definitely be an option.......that's all I'm really saying.....

    I was really surprised actually when one wasn't included.
