Worthy successors, until...

The 960 looks like a worthy successor to my 950 - a great phone, and introducing WLAN, camera and upgraded memory is great. Then they'll give to Orange who'll slap their own software on it and ruin the damn thing...

Jogging?

Go for a jog, it changes tracks with each step.

Trip while walking around the office, shuffle your carefully crafted playlist.

Thank you, but I already have enough trouble with my laptop (you know, the kind you turn upside down and shake to reboot).

Jeremiah, I think you missed the text "Select its Shake option...".

It obviously optional functionality that you can turn on/off depending on when you are running or not. Besides, I would imagine they had thought of that too so it probably takes a more vigorous shake to shuffle than a little trip.

The shake to control seems like a solution in search of a problem to me. Whilst I applaud the engineering design that went in to it I suspect that it is a 'cool' feature that wont be seen elsewhere
