Producing a good random-number generator is definitely not easy. If it was, then there would be no problems with SanDisk and Samsung MP3 players playing back songs randomly. I suspect the developers did not test their generators carefully. I think we should also make a distinction between playing back songs randomly and playing back songs in shuffle mode.
