Do iPods have some kind of artificial intelligence somehow hardwired into their systems? Or can they perform some sort of Vulcan mind-meld with their users?
I'm asking this because of something that has been happening lately with my iPod.
Yes, I have playlists on my iPod. However, I don't really use them that much anymore. I'm kinda sick of what I've programmed into them and am thinking about deleting them entirely.
Forget about that "thinking" part. It's done. They're gone. As we speak, they are being wiped from my iPod.
Yeah, I just get sick of them anymore. It's like listening to the same old mix tape day after day after day.
So, what I've been doing lately, aside from listening to my podcasts, is to just take my entire iPod and set it to shuffle. I never know what song or even genre will be played. And, when you've got 2,303 songs on your iPod, there is a lot of randomness inherent in this approach. Since I've copied over a couple hundred albums, in their entirety, there is a very great chance that I don't know many of the songs that are on my iPod. I just put them on there to give myself a chance to listen to something new.
However, over the course of the last couple days that I've been doing this, I may think of a certain song or band and, lo and behold, that winds up being the next song or band played by my iPod. It's eerie. But I like it. It's like some sort of symbiotic relationship that I am currently experiencing with doPi.
I don't get it, but I won't complain. He's been picking some great tunes lately.
Heck, last night at the gym, I listened to a run of about seven great songs in a row while doing some cardio. All were songs that I really like and are easy to work out to. This morning, on the way to work, every single song that was played was absolutely spectacular. And just what I wanted to hear at the moment.
Woah... I'm anthropomorphizing my iPod. But maybe he deserves it.
