How Random Is the iPod's Shuffle?I love that this is still an issue. The WSJ digs up something that was a hot topic about a year ago:
Mads Haahr -- a random-number enthusiast, lecturer in computer science at Trinity College in Dublin and keeper of the Web site Random.org, a popular source of random numbers -- intends to answer a question that has long bedeviled users of Apple's popular music player: Does the shuffle function really play users' songs in random order?Oddly enough, it's a good read.
And for the record, the iPod shuffle was never truly random. :) [ Posted at 10:21 AM | Permalink ]
