    Is this feature also in the new 2.1 firmware? If not that's pretty lame, seeing as the iPod touch was the first iPod with an accelerometer...

    I doubt it.
    There would be many "false alarms", it's pretty unnecessary, and would really just result in it being a pain.

    Just think about it, look at all the threads complaining about the iPod going into "Cover Flow" and some way to disable it. I really doubt they'd be able to handle Shake to Shuffle

    Like say you were listening to something by Slipknot or Slayer or some Metal band. And then your friend whose listening with you shoves you. It shakes. To shuffle.

    Suddenly.

    MILEY CYRUS, THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. WTF????

    Haha, that'd be hilarious to see xD

    Anyways I can just imagine the hundreds of threads desperate to disable the "Shake to Shuffle" feature. For me, it'd be priceless

    All you'd need would be a switch in the Settings...

    True, but with different features on the Touch Apple has a tendency to exclude such options xD
