500 word minimum ? i think not

either way, the article makes 2 claims i think

1: that podcasts are great, apple had a good idea to incorporate it into itunes, blah blah blah

2: apple is the devil and is preventing some podcasts from being "air'd"

podcasts havent appealed much to me - i hate all talk shows (yes, even howard stern) let alone to download some and listen to them later.

i prefer to read my news, when i want to

but still... maybe, could it be, possible that the apple servers just cant deal with the high demand that podcasts have put on the ITMS ?

between all the downloads, storage of all this data, the amount of connections made per hour... bandwidth throatleing of some sort?

just a idea

I don't like podcasts either. What's the point of hearing news that's a few days old that I've read already?

There's only one podcast that I really like. I can't think of the name right now but it has to do with DV. They have guests that talk about how to make your video look more professional and even give tips and tricks. Now that is the kind of podcast I like.

Podcasts aren't just about the news. I listen to shows like Dawn and Drew, the Delta Park Project, Caribbean Free Radio, Earthcore (a podcast novel), and the Vegan Cooking School - none of them are "the news" (although Caribbean Free Radio, based out of Trinidad, definitely dealt with the news a lot during the bombings and hurricane emily).
