Humbug.

Because after all that shaking, you would have no bars of service and could never write a txt.(talk about lag).:p

Because there has to be somethings that they have different so people still buy nanos.

On a jailbreak, the "PocketTouch" interface for the iPod will allow this functionality. Check it out.

Personally, I disable this feature because I never listen to the iPod sitting perfectly still. It's too easy to shift out of a cool groove once you start dancing. :D

funny you say this. When I saw the demo if that with the nano, I started to shake my phone in hopes that it would work. Not only did it fail, it looked dumb too.

For the last month or so, I had been having a problem with my songs randomly stopping with an audible tone and the next song would play. I just realized today that it was happening whenever I would shake or jar my phone. The whole time I thought I had some bug!

What he said.

I turned it off for obvious reasons.

With the 3.0 installed, i found 2 problems...

1) When you shake to shuffle, then click on the "back song" button, the Ipod app crashes.

2) Shake to shuffle meant you look a tool - just put it on random and skip to next song ;)
