    Why triple clicking to go back one song? When triple anything is hard for some people and is generally discouraged as a UI practice.

    Well, lets see. When Apple introduced single clicking for Pause/Play and double clicking to skip, it was obvious the back function was missing.

    Why not hold the button for 2 seconds to go back? Easy and intuitive --try it.

    The only possible explanation I can come up with is that holding the remote button is being reserved for a future use.

    Is OS supported voice dialing coming?

    I say yes.

    Any other explanations?

    Keep the motion the same for the related actions.

    One click - pause
    Two clicks - forward
    Three clicks - back

    It may seem odd but I believe that by keeping them all relatively the same people will remember better.
