And just how many 'PODcasts are downloaded to i-PODS as opposed to other devices? These are just simple digital recordings of programs, lectures, speeches, etc. that are available to download and listen to at the user’s convenience in (usually) .mp3 format. So the fact that the majority are not recorded in Apple’s proprietary audio format would suggest that they should be referred to as something else. But Noooooo . . . everyone calls them ‘podcasts’!
What’s another name? Let’s make one up here!
I’ve wondered about this issue myself, because I listen to quite a few , and have been at a loss as to anything else to call them without having to explain what the hell I am talking about:wink:
