Now that the shock of losing the Touch has settled in, do you have any thoughts or opinions as to who a successor might be? I've started looking but what I've found either has additional (unwanted) functionality or are significantly pricier. (To hedge bets, I've bought a spare Touch, which BTW, are steadily increasing as I assume others are rushing to get before they disappear).
