Another Podcast Hosting Site MIA!

Thursday, December 15th, 2005

It has come to my attention that there has been another death in the podcasting family…. www.slapcast.com. From what I’ve seen, there looks to be an issue with the domain owner either having forgot to renew the domain or choosing not to (or maybe it got hijacked!). Either way, this is a tragedy to the […]

Stuff Magazine UK Creates Podcast

Wednesday, December 14th, 2005

I love Stuff…when do we get a US version? “We stuttered, we ummed and we managed a new paradigm in poor sound quality, but that hasn’t stopped the first ever Stuff podcast climbing to number four in the UK iTunes Music Store chart. Thanks to your help, fellow gadgeteers, we’ve managed to pip Chris Evans […]

House of Blues Podcast

Thursday, December 8th, 2005

Approved an interesting podcast today from the House of Blues. If you are interested in keeping up on the blues scene (or just the good up-and-coming music scene), the Ones To Watch page (and podcast) may be just what you were looking for. “Every band starts somewhere, and House of Blues is proud to present […]

Virgin Atlantic becomes first UK company to offer Podcasting

Thursday, December 8th, 2005

Cool concept. I always knew the travel genre could be a great place to help people through podcasting (including sound seeing tours) and I applaud Virgin Atlantic for taking the initiative to create original audio content to NYC visitors to enhance their experience. “Virgin Atlantic has always been an airline of firsts – the first […]

Wired News: Wikipedia Tightens the Reins

Monday, December 5th, 2005

With all the arguing going on in the podcasting world about Adam Curry editing the history of podcasting through Wikipedia, I thought it was humorous to see this article published today at Wired.com. It turns out that editing the histroy of Kennedys assasination is much worse than that of podcasting. “SAN FRANCISCO — Wikipedia, the […]

‘Podcast’ Is the Word of the Year : Oxford American Dictionary

Monday, December 5th, 2005

Hooray for podcasting! “Thousands of podcasts are available at the iTunes Music Store, and websites such as iPodder.com and Podcast.net track thousands more. That’s why the editors of the New Oxford American Dictionary have selected “podcast” as the Word of the Year for 2005.” ‘Podcast’ Is the Word of the Year

iPodderX Renaming Contest Confusing?

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

After reading the story from PodcastingNews.com about iPodderX having to change their name, I looked over at Brian here in the office and said to him, “Looks like iPodderX got the letter for Apples lawyers!” not even thinking about what the real story was here. I continued to tell him about the prizes that go […]

Boing Boing: RIAA targets mashups

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Thanks to boing boing for bringing this one to my attention. This should act as a warning to other podcasters who are playing mashups in their podcasts. I havent heard of anyone else who sends out mashups getting RIAA letters…has anyone else? “MashupTown, a site that hosts and distributes mashups (two or more songs ingeniously […]

Audible’s Wordcast has some Critics

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

There have been a few interesting articles published recently about the new Audible service that uses a closed DRM to protect and to monetize podcasts. I had been looking for information on it but it turns out the reason I couldn’t really find anything was because it is still in a closed beta. I will […]
