I didn't mean to imply that everybody who listens to music on their computer uses shuffle: I put all of my music on my computer, whether I buy it online or as a CD and rarely use shuffle as well. I just mean that along with digital music and buying single songs, shuffle seems to be one of the most common ways to listen to music lately.
Unfortunately, even though I much prefer CDs and miss holding the case and the lyrics and the art in my hand, I have realized that it just makes much more economical sense to buy online. I do that for most bands, but for my favorites I still buy only CDs and just have to deal with the cost. I wish it was practical to buy only CDs.
Of course my iPod has a place, for listening when mobile there's no way CDs can compare.
