Hey People!

iTunes 4.9 is now available via software update.
It includes really nice Podcast support via the iTunes Music store and enables a seamless sync to your iPod.

It also adds new options to remove old podcasts and also seems to make most podcasts bookmarkable!

Apparently it also adds support for the iTunes enabled phone to be released by Motorola.

My only gripe so far is that the podcasts can clutter up your artists menu, as each different podcast shows up as an individual artist.

I'd like an automatic renaming option. Any ideas for an automator workaround?

Great!!!.....That means the chances for iBook/Powerbook updates on July 7 is REALLY high!!!....I first thought that the July 7th event was made just for iTunes, but I guess not.

There were announcements yesterday like crazy that this was coming today, but I guess they were right. Wow! Jeez, this is great. Now I can delete all this third party software. And all I need to do now is make my smart playlists, and I'm off.

Anybody got some good podcasts to recommend?

Right now, I listen to TWiT, Dawn and Drew, and Leo Laporte the Tech Guy.

Nice...A couple of interesting things about this-- one is that they released the PC version at the same time (I'm not totally familiar with Apple's release schedule, but last time I think there was a delay of a couple of weeks before the PC version got the update), two is that Audible.com has set up their subscription based stuff to work as podcasts.

Apple did a nice job with this-- looks like podcasting is about to hit critical mass.

Edit: Looks like a number of Podcast sites have gotten knocked off-line by people trying out the new podcast feature of iTunes. "Dawn and Drew", "WGBH Morning Stories" and "Inside Mac Radio" aren't working right now (Dawn and Drew's website appears to be down as well). Of course they are on the recomended section of Apple's website, so everyone and their grandmother probably subscribed to them.

The new podcast feature is really nice but the podcast sys prefs are a little confusing, imo. I have mine set for "keep most recent episode" but does this mean it will automatically delete older episodes? I'm hoping that's the case. Once you get to subscribing to 5 or more of these things, managing them manually would be a chore. Any input here would be appreciated.

edit: I also think it's only a matter of time before Apple charges a (nominal) monthly fee to access podcasts.

I'm noticing problems with subscribing and downloading some podcasts too. But I have download just about 95% of all the ones that didn't work after reading this, it worked great.
