    Did anyone ever figure out if running with the new nano will keep the music shuffling?

    According a panelist on Macbreak Weekly who attended the event, he asked an Apple rep about it and they said they designed it not to switch while running or jogging. This said, when I went to check out the iPods in person, it took a violent shake to get it to switch.

    Also I think, as long as the hold switch is on, it shouldn't shuffle.

    It'll be interesting to see how many people drop their iPod's while trying to shuffle them..

    I did the same went to the Apple store to try them out, and found it to be harder than you would think to activate it. Also you can turn it off in the settings which has been mentioned around here in other threads.

    Hey,

    I have the new nano and it takes quite a hard shake for it to shuffle. It is a nice feature. You should get one. great for watching movies on.

    I doubt I'll have much use for it. I use my Nano mainly for working out, so I see this feature being disabled if/when I upgrade.

    I'm currently using the 3rd Generation Nano and I love it, but the new one's are tempting imo.

    Can you imagine people getting out their ipods on a crowded train and SHAKING them. Oh god!

    How ever it is a lot better then back, back, back, shuffle songs I suppose (except for when you are on trains)
