My iPod has no idea of the definition of the word shuffle. It has a particular genre or band that it prefers (and that changes every day) and that’s what it plays. Only that. Today has been all about The Beatles, TV On The Radio and Ben Folds Five. Yesterday was all The Redwalls and Rilo Kiley. The day before that was Flickerstick and random christmas songs (it’s probably time to remove those from my iPod). I do have other music on my iPod, lots of it! Variety-a-go-go!

Should I be worried that my iPod not only is very opinionated (and one track minded), but is apparently conscious? Is that normal?
