Will there be a new high capacity iPod soon?

My trusty 60gig iPod finally bit the dust. Capacity is crucial to me. Should I buy a new 160gig iPod Classic, or is there a general consensus that Apple will be releasing something new soon for the high-capacity iPod crowd?

Best portable music player for a finnicky music collector?

I can't really be looking for the Holy Grail of MP3 players, can I? Big drive, SSD, straightforward file management and control over my music collection - too much to ask? Which one do I pick, or how do I make a current one in to what I want? [more inside]

Apple Touch features

Apple Touch feature question: can the new Touch remember which particular song or video I was playing in each of several folders, and the point at which I stopped listening to the song or video, so that later I can get back to it quickly? These are features that Tivo has nailed for TV recording and I'd love to find an mp3 + pocket video player that can do the same thing. If not the Touch, is there another portable player that can do those things?

An MP3 Player for my Cold Dead Robot Hands

I'd like to buy a nice MP3 player that doesn't involve capacitive sensing. So: controls that only have moving mechanical parts like buttons or wheels, and aren't dependent on me having to generate a bioelectrical field conducted through my fingers. I'd also like it to have a large memory, and video playback if possible. Essentially, a wholly-mechanically-controlled version of the 160 GB iPod would be ideal. Does such an MP3 player exist for those of us who have trouble with our conductive capabilities?

iPod Nano case & caveat

Can anyone recommend a sturdy armband holder (for working out) for the iPod Nano (current version) that will work with the FM tuner attachment? I've looked at a half dozen on Amazon and it seems like they only have a small headphone out on the bottom, and none will take the larger dock-like block that the FM tuner attaches to.
