    Despite saying I'd never buy another one, it kind of happened again. Anyway I've put some MP3s on it via iTunes and they've been separated into music and podcasts. The music plays fine, but when I skip through the tracks the podcasts don't appear to exist. Am I missing something? They play fine from the Shuffle when connected to my Mac.

    Edit: oh, I get it now. Apple have decided it's a step forward to force you to use multiple playlists for everything instead of just throwing everything in the one pot and skipping between tracks without having to concern yourself with which category they're in. Brilliant!

    At least it appears that you can tell iTunes a podcast is actually music so you can listen to them sequentially within the same playlist.
