The Three Little Words Every Technology Fan Loves To Hear: ‘You Were Right’

September 12th, 2008


So the new iPod nano is getting rave reviews:

One of the more frivolous delights of the nano 4G is the new shake-to-shuffle feature. Using the accelerometer, the player will switch to Shuffle mode when physically shaken—provided you’re in the Now Playing screen. The feature does mean, however, that iPod users who, in the past, have ignored the Hold switch will want to acquaint themselves with it. Trust me: it’s rare, but annoying to shake the player just enough to switch to shuffle mode accidentally. Phone cards. On the bright side: If the screen has gone dark, the shake feature is disabled—Apple assumes the nano is shaking inside your purse or pocket and not your hand if the screen is off.

Say, that reminds me of something, hey how about January 28th, 2006.

And you’re welcome. Every time you accidentally shuffle your songs from now on, you can think of me.

I’m not sure how useful this is going to be in day-to-day use, however. I personally find the list view-to-cover flow flip supremely annoying on my iPhone — it triggers too easily and offers little, and most times I wish the device had just stayed in list view mode.
