Don't equate "extra functionality" with "better functionality" - the 2 are
often not the same!!! :-)

Also, better for you != better for me, necessarily.

I have to say it doesn't seem too useful to me. Often, when picking up my
player in the morning, I can't remember where I was up to listening last
time. I just hit PLAY, and if I was in the middle of a playlist it
resumes, otherwise I get told that there is nothing to resume. That seems
the most logical to me.

For it to re-start playing the album I just finished listened to yesterday
evening is really NOT what I want.

For your example of using it as an alarm clock, surely setting REPEAT on
is the best solution for you?
