Power button

Taking off the top power button cover.

The Zune sports only three external buttons, while the iPod touch has four. Apple doesn't think their users are smart enough to handle a multi-button mouse, but they expect people to be able to use four different buttons on their iPod touch. Steve Jobs is probably already trying to figure out how to remove two buttons from the iPod touch.
