SAN FRANCISCO, June 28 – Apple Computer added new utility on Tuesday to the device that gave podcasts their name. It made available a version of its iTunes software designed for subscribing to podcasts, audio recordings that can be downloaded to an iPod or other music player for portable listening.
Since I purchased my iPod mini a few months ago, I’ve been downloading books, a subscription to the New Yorker, and other podcasts from business experts. I don’t have any music on my iPod. I have a subscription with Audible.com for $14.95 a month which allows me to get one book and one subscription per month. I’m way behind in my listening, and I can listen anywhere, anytime when I want to.
Currently on my playlist: Freakonomics, My Life by Bill Clinton, and Saturday by Ian McEwen.
