• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Okay is it just me or ne1 else think the clickwheel should be white?

I'm sorry but if the clickwheel on the ipod was white it would look much "cleaner" and more appealable... like the 3rd gens... i mean the ipod design right now is soo great... the new 5th gens are skinny as (a word i cannot say) and the clickwheel isnt too big or small.. now just make the whole front white... (the clickwheel) like this http://www.colorwarepc.com/gallery/iPodVideo/smoke.htm anyone agree?.. disagree?

I agree ... I would love an all white face. This is part of the reason why I still hang on to my 3G (red glowing touch sensitive buttons another reason) *wink*

definitely.

I've had the same thought in my head since I first looked at the white Nano and the smoke nano on colorware. The grey clickwheel is ugly, especially on a nano.

I think if they made the clickwheel white then the black/white nano sales would even out. (The white would look good and show scratches less than the black one!)

I Totally Agree!

I Ordered my ipod to be blue w/ white clickwheel from colorware, but they gave me a grey one :eek:

I didn't want to wait another two weeks for it to get fixed so I just kept it.

i thought about sending my ipod to colorware to get my clickwheel white but i just couldnt justify paying that much for a painted clickwheel. the white clickwheel is the way to go though. it looks so much better.

Based upon the responses so far, apparently it's not just you that thinks the clickwheel should be white.

I, for one, like it just the way it is.

I don't care for the white clickwheel. I see the grey clickwheel as a sort of iconic ipod design.

*edit* And i just noticed, it looks like the ipod has 5 O'Clock shadow!!!

I agree! I've actually always thought that the clickwheel should be white. Grey does NOT go well with white! I've gotten used to it, from having to look at ipods and their ads for 4+ years now. I will never get a white iPod unless they change the clickwheel. I refuse to give Colorware.com $56 to change the color of my ipod.

The fact that the click wheel isnt white made me buy a black ipod. I hate the gray wheel. Just doesn't look right.

if the 6g have all white face I'll go back to white.

I'd like to see an all white face and have the menu/fwrd/play/etc icons glow in blue. Then,have the black ipod all black but w/ a red glow for the icons.

I like the grey wheel.
Think of all the other grey/silver apple products.
Its almost like a transition from the white lower end apple products (ibook) to the more expensive silver kind (powerbook, powermac).

i think they made i grey for a reason, if it was white it would get all dirty like the mini's clickwheel after a while, and if they put a coating on like colorware does, it would cost heaps more

I think the grey wheel looks better.

But if they put a white clickwheel on the ipod using the same material as the gray click wheel, it will look horrible because it will stain and get all brown and disgusting, just like what happened with the mini's clickwheel.

I have to agree, the 3rd generation iPod is definitely my favorite iPod, judging by design alone. I think if Apple could design the clickwheel so that it is similar to how it was on the 3rd gen, then we would be in good shape. It's not that I don't like the grey, just that I like the white more. :)
