There seems to be a recurring controversy or confusion over whether or not the shuffle feature is truly random. It may not be as a great or enduring mystery as who created Stonehenge, or crop circles or who was Jack the Ripper, but it still deserves to be addressed.

The idea behind the Shuffle mode is that the next song will be truly random and unpredictable, much like an audience member picking a card from a magician’s stack. But is this idea the reality? Or do we misinterpret what the Shuffle feature is and does?

According to Steven Levy, who has written an authoritative book about the iPod and knows almost as much about Apple as did Steve Jobs, the shuffle feature does indeed work in the same way as choosing a card from a shuffled deck. If you pick out a card from the shuffled deck, and then choose another card from it, and then another and so on, you will eventually pick 52 cards just once each.

The same concept applies to Shuffle feature. The problem, though, is in listening to all of the songs available. Many people have 800 songs, and cannot listen to all of them to verify this. Thus, they reshuffle the playlist and get different interpretations.

On the other hand, it may not be random. If you flip a coin 1000 times, then it ought to land heads 500 times and tails 500 times. In actuality, it may be 501 and 499.

Regardless, do enjoy listening to the songs that you have obtained through your free itunes codes.
