Today, I decided to listen to my first “podcast”. If you don’t know what podcastting is, here goes:
1) Podcasting is a bad name – really it should be called “Audio” casting, or something like that. I don’t own an ipod and I doubt I ever will.
2) Someone records themselves talking, like a talk radio show, then they upload it to the net in mp3 format. You download to your pc, then to your pocket pc or mp3 player, etc.
3) You can then listen to the casts anywhere (plane, car, bathroom?)
I listened to the latest Engadget podcast, and learned some pretty cool things. The only thing is I wish it wasn’t called podcastting!
