Why can't Apple get Voice Control on iPod Touch to play individual songs?

    You can say:

    "Play Playlist 1" or "Play Artist John Doe" or "Play Album Album 1"
    but not "Play Song Folksy Ballad by John Doe" or something similar to
    that statement.

    Why can't Apple go all the way with iPod touch voice and give it the
    full plethora of controls?

    The one that annoys me is there is no "redial" command.

    Oh, and there should be a weight given to names in the favorite list.

    Different topic, but it seems the podcaster gets to determine the
    controls on my iPod to some extent. For example, some of my podcasts
    have the backtrack 30 seconds circular arrow below the time slider in
    the middle and some don't.

    This is determined by if the file is bookmark able, as I recall.

    You can change a track to be bookmark-able.
