iPod Shuffle: Don’t Play It Again Sam

February 18, 2013

iPod shuffle

Guess, what Mathspiggies?

When Apple first released the iPod Shuffle it included a Random Play option from the owner’s playlist. People started complaining that ‘random ‘ option played the same track in a row or too often. Why?

Because random means any track is selected then that track goes back on the list and may or may not be selected again. To correct the ‘RANDOM’ problem Apple had to add an algorithm that stopped to many repeats.

See Fun Class Exercise to check RANDOM PLAY here.
