"... when an iPod does a shuffle, it reorders the songs much the way a Vegas dealer shuffles a deck of cards, then plays them back in the new order. So if you keep listening for the week or so it takes to complete the list, you will hear everything, just once. But people generally listen only to the first few dozen songs. In theory, that sample should be evenly distributed among all the artists and albums in their collections."I'm totally sold on the iPod Shuffle — Dom brought his on our Squaw road trip yesterday and it was way cool. He wears it snowboarding too, which I wanna try some day.
