iTunes Sentience (pt 1)

A Fistful of Dollars coverMuch has been made in recent times of iTunes-ran­dom’s shuffle’s abil­ity to pick exactly the right song, at the right time, des­pite Apple’s insist­ence that ran­dom is com­pletely RNDom.

I’ll come back to this at some point with some more examples of the voo­doo at work here, but suf­fice to say, for the time being, that iTunes fol­low­ing A Fistful of Dollars with Minas de cobre by Calexico is as good a segue as I have ever exper­i­enced and (shush), it does this sort of thing all the flam­in’ time.
