iPod shuffle problem? Sounds interesting. I’m guessing the iPod would deliberately play songs that the were underplayed

The shuffle problem: the original shuffle was truly random, it played songs in no order whatsoever. But because people find patterns in everything, people complained that it "wasn't random enough", songs from the same album played back to back, genres clumped together, things that happen when random happens again and again, but people thought it was because of patterns. So Apple replaced Shuffle with an algorithm that made it seem "more" random, even though it eliminated all randomness
