What do you think about the suggestion Chris Holt made - to call this a
"study" mode that has to be activated if you want to use it? This way
it could become a part of the normal image. I would not mind activating
this mode once before starting a radio show or an audio book.
IMHO Quick Skip looses much of its appeal when you need to press two
buttons to use it.
I can also image that people will actually use this mode for studying
because this gives you much more control abot recorded lectures.
