iPod Shuffle bug fix leaves key bug unfixed

Firmware 1.1.3 still skips some paused ITMS songs

Apple has updated the iPod Shuffle's firmware to version 1.1.3, saying only that the new code includes "bug fixes" but without detailing the release's improvements.

Alas the update still does not remedy the recurrent Shuffle glitch that causes some tracks downloaded from the iTunes Music Store to be skipped when the pause button is pressed.

The update is available within the newly released iPod Update 2005-11-17 utility, which can be downloaded through Mac OS X's Software Update control panel, or from the Apple web site. The firmware included for other iPods remains unchanged since the last iPod Update release on 12 October 2005. ®
