iTunes with Podcast support

iTunes 4.9 is available for download now! It supports podcasts out of the box, and I think that this is great for anyone new to the medium.

I installed it and found that it was easy to start building a list of podcasts that I was subscribed to. One notable feature I like is that there are options for what to keep, so that you don’t fill up your harddrive with shows that you are done with or didn’t listen to. Also, it keeps your podcast shows separate from your Library of music. To me that is a awesome. I often loose shows when they are mixed in with the general population, unless the genre is set to “Podcast” or something.

There are a few notable things that I believe could use improving. One is importing of OPML lists, and maybe some smartlist capability, however I think that this is a step in the right direction…

If a geek falls at CON does he make a sound?

About a month ago, I started co-hosting a podcast with Chuck Tomasi over at I don’t know why I am just now posting something about it…but I am.

We talk about Tech, geek, and anything in between. In the last few shows, Chuck and I talked about 10 things you can do with your old pc…and I did a Sound Seeing tour of my Midnight experience seeing Revenge of the Sith, and I also had a nice interview with one of the drivers of the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile.

On this Wednesdays show we are talking about Firefox, and our favorite extensions and tricks. Coming up, in the next few episodes…Wiki’s (not Wookies) and later in June I will be visiting Hero’s Comic Book convention in Charlotte, NC.

So come on over and release your inner geek!
