odd iTunes fact

You know how it was driving everyone nuts when the same album would come up in the random shuffle? It was because it was truly random, like flipping a coin, so statistically, the same song or album would come up oddly often.

Now in iTunes 5.01, they have a preference. It's a little slider in "Playback" pref where you can choose truly "random" (the default), or "less likely" to hear songs from the same album in a row.

There's also an option to shuffle songs, albums or groupings, so you don't suddenly go from something soft and lulling to gypsy punk.

They do listen to customers, sometimes!
