Podcasting rocks. It's an awesome way to automate the process of getting some audio onto a portable device to listen when I'm away from my computer (commute, beach, biking, etc.).
Far be it from me, a lowly "c-list" blogger, to suggest that the Podcasting name sucks, but it does. The iPod has a huge market share right now, but Apple has a tradition of f*ing up a good thing (just for the record I'm writing this post on a PowerBook). Is everyone afraid of pissing these guys off?
As I write this post I'm listening to a Podcast on a HP iPaq. I also have 2 other non-Apple MP3 players. The iPod is truely a work of art, but it's going to lose market share and eventually be a footnote in history. It's hard to come up with a good name for a product, so I can't totally go off on the brilliant minds behind this one, but find another name already before this lame term gets widely used.
