But not useful to one != not useful to others... On a touchwheel
target (i.e. Ipods) the accuracy of the wheel can be pretty dismal -
one cannot just eyeball an item a few lines down and knows that three
keypresses will get one there; instead one needs to watch for not
overscrolling, etc. All in all, sometimes changing a small setting by
going through the menu takes forever, especially if the option is
buried deep in the menu (screen brightness for example).
