Default Next and Previous motions backwards?

For me when I move my finger from left to right my P2 does previous, whereas I would have expected it to do next, and vise verse for right to left.

Is that is how it is supposed to be or is it just me finding that weird?

I don't quite understand. I read from left to right (you are from canada so you should too...). Also when reading a book, you start with the left page then you read the right, then flip. Also, whenever you see a number line, the lower numbers on on the left, and the larger ones are on the right.

For these reasons I would expect the next song to be left to right. (On a number line going to the next highest interval, on a book going to the next page or in a sentence going to the next word all involver going to the right).

The same thing happens to me, and this is what i have summed it up as.
When you read a book, you pull the page from right to left to go forward a page, same on the P2, and to go back, you pull it from left to right to return a page, if it bothers you, just use the little arrows in the corner, the same as Sollecks.

hmm...it makes sense to me,
just imagine you're "pushing" the song away to make room for the next song =)

Thanks for the explanation. I am sure with time I will get used to it.

just another type of explanation, works better if you think of it like a book, you read left to right, when you flip the page, you take the right page, and flip it to the left
