True Randomness

Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

The Apple iPod touts their music player’s ability to sort through your song library as such an essential feature that they named an entire product line “Shuffle“. Well, apparently some folks were not happy with the randomness of the shuffle songs feature, so Apple recently added a control to the randomness. As shown above, you can now make it more likely that you will hear songs from the same album or artist in a random selection, or less likely, whichever you prefer.

And I thought, “Well, actually, I just prefer… RANDOM.”

I don’t want any sort of manufactured randomness that is more or less random. I want just plain old random. True and complete, honest-to-goodness randomness.

Does that say something about me? 🙂
