I don't see anything that classifies as a wheel in either of these shots. I don't know what the first item is though I think it might be headphones. The white ring on the Ipod does not rotate as far as I know. I think you have interpreted wheels to mean circles. Although circles are involved, the circular shaped object must be capable of rotation.

The first one is a headphone reel akin to Mike_1's garden hose reel. I tried to emphize the 'gear' on the black and the teeth on the cracked lid that, when closed, engages and you wind away. Sony provides an embossed user guide (the triangle) though I consider this a form of micro-managment as it works whichever way you go!

Agreed 2's a strech, but Apple's name for the control is the 'jog wheel' 'cause you crank your finger around it to adjust volume and other things.

I can vouch for it. I have an identical one, complete with the cracked lid. "Say goodbye to tangled & kinked earphone cable misery !"

Actually, it's "Say 'hello' to slipping plastic mechanism misery", in my case. But as it cost me 1 ukpound (about US$1.50) for a reasonable pair of earphones, I can't complain.
