    For any who have more information about the keynote today, was there any mention of WHEN we'll be getting iTunes 4.9? Not that I'm a huge podcast fanatic, but I'm always excited for new builds of iTunes.

    I'll give you an eduacated guess. About a month or less.

    Been about 30 days since Steve said within the next 60 days, so he has another 30 days to go approximately.

    Nah, we NEED HE AAC. I will still probably encode at 256kbps, but in HE I expect a minor improvement in quality, (although looking into this does not confirm it will be the case).

    HE-AAC is only for very low bitrates (64kbps and less). It's mainly targeted at streaming and online radio

    I was just wondering how long it will take to download say a 30 minute podcast. In the keynote, was Steve downloading them from scratch? (if so it was a very very quick connection.)

    I had a feeling it would be that, but I don't care much anyway, I justs really wanted it as it would be another selling point for the iPods, (something to compare to Atrac3Plus and WMA, even though we all know that they are lower quality anyway). I still want it to support the format though, that and to get rid of the annoying silence at the end of the track, (a real pain when you listen to a lot of music that flows naturally from one track to the next, e.g. Pink Floyd).
