At this present time I have 4276 tracks in my Itunes collection. I carry these around on various portable item (ipad/ipod/Archos) but for some reason the shuffle function on my ipad/ipod/macbook only seem to serve the same 10 percent songs, so I have started to listen to my collection from A to Z. This is incredibly liberating and I have rediscovered the majority of the tracks that I had completely forgotten about (I completely forgot about my Miles Davis collection). It also tends to serve a very varied program, and keeps my afternoons at work much more interesting.
The only thing I want to know whether Apple benefits from pushing only a handful of songs. Do I smell a conspiracy?
