How the monkey does this work! It's sorta creepy. My mini has about 1200 songs on it, I put it on shuffle songs, get bored of some tracks and then I get pretty much the opposite. I was listening to some Nine Inch Nails (Closer to god, the only song I like by them ) but I got bored half way through the track wanting something softer; a random track from one of my Celtic chillout albums came on! ok ok so it could just be fluke, but it seems to me that if I skip a song then the next track, or the one after, is totally different. But if I sit and listen to a whole track then another one, from the same genre or artist comes on. How do iPods shuffle songs? It sounds pretty smart (skip=different genre, end of song=same genre?). Anyone know? Any strange stories about your iPods and doing the shuffle?
