Who to blame?

I’ve been using WinAmp on my Android phone as my main source of music in the car. I really enjoy it, but since I’ve taken to having my playlist be “all the music on my phone” in shuffle mode, I’ve noticed one thing. Shuffle really sucks. I understand that the heart of the problem is going to be the pseudo-random number generation, but who is to blame for the crappy implementation? The hardware vendor? The OS? The programming language? The WinAmp devs? I need to know who to write a nastygram to, and if it’s even possible to find a better app for randomizing my playlist.

 

P.S. WordPress still works, right? I haven’t used this thing in over a year. :-p
