    I just downloaded iTunes version 4.9. I really like the podcasting feature.

    So how does podcasting work? It time shifts/records radio for later listening? I guess I could do some research...

    From looking at "Publish a Podcast" within iTunes 4.9, you first create an RSS feed that contains your broadcast (it looks just about any audio or video codec that iTunes can use or convert) then submit that URL to iTunes for consideration.

    Basically, yeah.

    It's essentially the same thing as getting an audio archive in that you get a big ol' mp3 file for a broadcast, but the key difference is that you subscribe to it so iTunes automatically looks for updates and then loads it onto your iPod.

    I use the ipodder software http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php and have really enjoyed its features and easy use. Just cut and paste the xml link of the podcast you want and it automaticly checks for updates.

    www.wfmu.org has some great shows available.

    I got my iPod Photo 30gb recently (now discontinued). I also got the AV cable so I can play music and photo slideshows on any TV. Useful for taking around to friends houses or showing photo's to family.

    re:podcasting.

    I'm not impressed. The technology is nothing new, Nullsoft (makers of Winamp) have had Shoutcast running for years. It's amateur radio, who wants that? It's like Blogs. Good if you know the person doing it or if you share a very specific interest but otherwise completely useless. And the few I have listened to sounded awful, using a $10 microphone doesn't make good listening.
