Geeky Links

As you may or may not have noticed, I've updated the links section of this blog. There are only a few links at the moment, but give them a try. Like the rest of this site they are a bit geeky and great for passing the time. Switching topics completely, Apple released itunes 4.9 yesterday. Normally something like this isn't even worth posting about, but the new itunes has integrated podcasting available. For those of you who don't know podcasting it's a way to allow people to publish audio files to the internet and let people know about it and have their software automatically download the files. (For more information on podcasting check out the information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast) Me, being the geek I am, as soon as I got home I downloaded and took it out for a spin. The program works pretty well for subscribing to podcasts. One thing I noticed though was the tricky-ness of apple. Normally I have my itunes set up to not show the itunes store, but in this release of itunes the podcasts are in the itunes store (don't worry they are still free). This allows apple to force users into their itunes store in order to subscribe to podcasts. Smart move if you ask me.

Geeky, indeed. This is going to be a geek blog, isn't it?
