well, the product name is "shuffle" so I suppose it is only natural that it will come with the "shuffle" option already turned on.
I don't mean that the device itself was playing tracks at random, I mean that iTunes loaded it full of random tracks... which would in turn mean that the device was indeed, playing random tunes...
My last 2 phones have been smart phones and the first time I connected either of them to the computer they downloaded my entire music library without asking - so I've never really had to worry about getting my music from one device to another because they all seem to want to do it whether I ask them to or not.
I get the feeling that I'm probably going to piss off the sales person whenever I go to buy a phone. They'll be talking about all the various features, and I'll just keep going, "Yeah, but can you make phone calls with it?"
I don't like to text people, I've got an iPod if I want to listen to music, I sure as hell don't want to watch video on a tiny little screen, I don't need or want apps.. just give me a phone I can make phone calls on, dammit. Maybe with internet access if I need to look something up while I'm out and about.

Yeah, ipods can be confusing at first but trust me, they become instinctual very fast. As for the random thing, that's why I had to stop playing their song shuffle game. That's where they start in the middle of the song and you have to guess from a bunch of choices what it is. I have a lot of stand up like you do so picking what that bit where the guy talks about his dog is titled got frustrating.
That's what I like about the shuffle; since it doesn't have a video screen or anything on it, they give you this little button on the side that will tell you what the track is, based on the attached file information. The volume of the music lowers for a few seconds, then this space alien voice comes on and tells you, then stuff goes back to normal.
Although, I've got some Van Canto on there, and the little space alien voice goes haywire on and that spits out gibberish for some reason.

I need to drive to Fairfax Monday for a business trip. So yeah...I'm a little worried. Hopefully Irene moves quickly.
Eh... that doesn't sound like fun. Be careful.
