Looks like to me Logitech could re-introduce the Touch at a 300% increase (along with better attached USB HD capability) and kill the market.  Nothing I have seen replaces it at a reasonable price other than homebuilt stuff.

Totally agree.  Logitech really stumbled when they killed the Squeezebox product line.
