    Description:: "In order to hide this fact, Apple has put up the equivalent of a 'best experienced in Internet Explorer' page to turn its own ineptitude into a marketing opportunity."

    I thought that photocasting required the client to have iPhoto 6 as well. If that's the case, then can you really shed a tear that the RSS feed doesn't work on a Windows machine? Even if the RSS feed was valid, you'd still not be able to make real use of the photocast.

    It doesn't. The feeds work in Safari and NetNewsWire, as examples, because they can handle the broken RSS.


    It says right on http://www.apple.com/ilife/iphoto/ :
    It's a lie. It doesn't even work right in other Mac browsers.

    works for me (on 2nd try)

    With Opera 8.51:
    First, I get the error message, but when i go to the address mentioned in that message, it works - I can subscribe to the feed and view the pictures.

    Sounds like a 0.0.1 update is needed.

    Should have looked at macrumors before banging my head over this all day! :rolleyes:
    Tried to see what the podcasting would look like with my PC to no avail. Troubleshooting all day & finally realized it won't cut it with typical (most) rss enabled browsers. I suppose Apple will come out with a fix it soon enough, but podcasting (to pc people) was one of the reasons I bought it. I really like the fact that you can get casts iphoto to iphoto, but irked over the fact that I wasted my time today.
