Tomo asks about whether the iPod has built-in support for marking particular locations within a song.

Here’s the use case: her hula group needs to practice different parts of a song repeatedly, and in whatever order feels most productive for the rehearsal. This means quickly switching to different points in a song: beginning of first verse, beginning of second verse, etc.

I know the iPod remote control can do a simple fast forward or reverse, but this doesn’t seem nearly as slick as being able to do one click (or two or three perhaps) to get to exactly the place where you want to get.

I suppose one could split a particular track up into many songs, so the iPod thinks of a four-minute song as a dozen twenty second songs, but that seems like overkill. Anyone have a good suggestion?
