    I thought this was pretty cool. Yesterday I was on my 17" Powerbook and wanted to check out an audiobook from my local library online. I wasn't sure if the PPC version of "Media Overdrive" would still be supported, since they are up to version 5 already. Sure enough, I was able to "check out" a new audio book from the library and my PPC version of Overdrive properly downloaded the file and then I plugged in my iPod and it transferred the audiobook to my iPod without any issue.

    Not a big deal I guess, but I though it was pretty awesome that this was still supported on my G4.

    Oh yeah, obviously the Overdrive website which says you need a Mac running Snow Leopard 10.6 isn't just need the older PPC Overdrive software.

    That's cool!

    Great to see there are still other things out there that can be done.
