I was asked today by a co-worker if the “[true video iPod](http://thinksecret.com/news/0602videoipod.html)” rumors from ThinkSecret were true:
> Think Secret can confirm recent rumblings that Apple is nearing completion of a completely revamped video iPod that will shed the ubiquitous mechanical click wheel for a touch screen and will sport a 3.5-inch diagonal display.
I could go on and on debunking this, but I think [Matt Thomas](http://www.iammattthomas.com/) made a [very clear point](http://www.newsvine.com/_news/2006/02/09/90927-true-video-ipod-to-have-35-inch-display-touch-screen-click-wheel#c27491) over at NewsVine, and for the sake of brevity, I will quote it entirely:
> I’m excited about this new iPod.
> In the meantime, I’ll enjoy watching TV content downloaded onto my new Mac mini with DVR that’s connected to my Apple plasma television. Later I’ll listen to my new iPod shuffle — one of the new ones released at Macworld last month — and fire up my new 13.3″ Intel-based iBook to play a few games.
> Life sure would be fun if Think Secret actually had believable sources. Sadly, that ain’t the case.
