I have a total of 1,482 songs on my ipod and like it seems the more i add, just like selecting a song and then skiping to another song takes a second or two longer than before. Is this normal?

umm - that's how it's supposed to work.

during normal playback the ipod caches your tunes in RAM and spins down the drive. When you jump around in a play list or pick songs at random you have to wait for the drive to spin back up (which chews up battery life).
