Yes, you're missing the split infinitive.

"want back" not "iPod back"

If you look at both pictures you can tell that the older model has the rounded edges on the front too.

I agree. Bring back the rounded front!

I think the flat front makes it appear thinner.

The flat front is old-school iPod! You could practically cut yourself on the front edge of a first-gen iPod.

You're right.


Oh, and I do prefer the non-rounded edges on the current iPod - the screen would have to be smaller if they'd rounded the edges.

The new iPods DO have rounded edges-they radius of the round is just much smaller than it used to be. It makes the thing look smoother and thinner, and I think the small-radius rounds look really good.
