    "iPod shuffle (3rd generation) Software Version 1.0.2

    • Playback starts on first button press after deep sleep.
    • Volume increases and decreases with individual button presses only.
    • Corrected minor Japanese VoiceOver messages.
    • Other minor bug fixes."

    I'm going to guess that this is Apple's quick/cheap fix to the reports that sweat was shorting out the volume control, and increasing the volume to max.

    The logic seems to be that if sweat enters the inline controller and shorts the "Vol up" side, it will not increase the volume to max, only up one increment, as the controller now requires individual button pushes (i.e. circuit closed/shorted, circuit open, circuit closed, circuit open, etc.)

    This would prevent a water/sweat short from raising the volume to max - but it will still lock up the controller if the short is continuous - so we won't blow our eardrums out, but we still won't be able to control the shuffle either.

    If anyone has a better understanding of the electrical/programming aspects of this change, or how it can alleviate the "sweat" issues that have been reported, I'd be interested in hearing them.

    my understanding of this is similar to yours. It will help the problem, but won't make the problem disappear.
