Anyone know why so many people's podcasts are so short? surely if anything mp3 players offer the opportunity for mixes longer than 74/80 minutes (although 60 minutes is usually long enough for a good set) Anyway, I highly recommend www.blentwell.com for mixes & dj sets.
bassnation said:i thought podcasts are mp3s - its just an annoying rebranding of a long-established audio format for people who think digital music begins and ends with the age of the ipod.
Ness Rowlah said:The innovation is not in the MP3-format, but the use of enclosures (ie MP3s for sound) within an RSS-feed (subscription). So as podcast-episodes are updated (as new MP3s), they are delivered directly to your MP3-player (without you ever having to go to a website to check for new MP3s). The wikipedia entry is now overlong - but as usual a good place to start.

bassnation said:having said all that, there are things i like about i-tunes, but its a peeve of mine when companies release agressive invasive software like this.
johanek said:Thats windows software for you... Most of these media players give options about file associations when you install them. iTunes should also have an option to turn off the checking of file associations when you startup. But as always there's too much fiddling to get something simple like this the way you want

itunes, yes i can understand - it's good, it works but every problem i have with new updates involves quicktime.
surely someone out there can defend it?
Do you mean iriver is over or just their big memory players? My wife bought a really nice little 1gb thing last week. I was helping with the selections and we were looking at a 2gb iAudio that was even tinier, but it was twice the price...gabriel said:i would unreservedly recommend the iAudio mp3 player (successor the now discontinued iRiver). no need for any software at all - like the iriver, it functions just like an external hard drive - you drag and drop eitehr onto or off it. what's more, you can record a line out directly into it as mp3 and it's got a built in mic which is wicked for dictaphone type use.
