This is a continuation of an earlier post of mine that I thought needed it's own subject line. I recently bought an iPod shuffle (this past weekend), and while I really like using it, I only discovered today that it doesn't update my last played information. This is a real caveat for creating any smart lists that identify songs I've been listening to lately, especially since I listen to the majority of music on the go. Has anyone figured out a work-around? I know the play count gets updated, but that doesn't help because I don't want to reset all of my play counts to zero all the time (then I have no top 100 list). I thought for a second that Date Modified would work because it would logically seem that updating the play count would modify the song, but that doesn't happen, I guess because it doesn't modify the actual file. Does anyone have any ideas of what to do? with Applescript and the date modified field perhaps? I really like to use the shuffle, but last played was at the core of so many of my playlists.
