Gapless Playback on iPod is Good

I haven't said it out loud, but I've thought it many times over the past month or so:

Thank goodness Apple woke up and added gapless playback on the iPod.

Prior to iTunes 7 and a corresponding iPod update the iPod couldn't play two songs in a row without putting a little space in between them. Extremely annoying when listeing to live recordings or albums designed to flow from song to song.

I still brace myself for the annoying space between songs because I'm so used to it, but now every time it doesn't come it's a little celebration that Apple finally did something about it.
