|10/26/2007 Realtors Use Podcasting to Increase Sales
There is little argument that RSS can and will generate
web traffic. Realtors using RSS feeds will increase the traffic
to their website, and more web traffic means more potential
buyers. RSS feeds will expand a realtor's reach and distribution,
meaning that Realtors will reach new audiences using RSS feeds.
RSS reaches areas through syndication that are just not as accessible
through normal channels or traditional realty advertising. Technically-savvy
investors with deep pockets keep watch for new listings, and
they will frequently scan RSS feeds for specific locations.
Using RSS feeds, real estate offices are able to draw attention
to specific properties they decide to highlight in their feeds.

|10/22/2007 Apple Changes Course
In an apparent about-face, Apple Inc. will allow third-party
applications to work directly on the iPhone, Chief Executive
Steve Jobs said in a posting on the companies website Wednesday.
Apple infuriated developers and some iPhone users when it issued
a software update Sept. 27 that disabled unofficial programs
installed on the handsets. Until Wednesday, Apple had tried
to control which applications consumers had on their iPhones.
|10/19/2007 Politics and the Internet
Can, and will, the next generation of politicians exploit
the communication mediums available to them? Will the new communication
mediums have the power to influence public opinion? Will politicians
be the victims of technology, or will they use it to their benefit?
Will one party benefit from the use of the technology more than
another? All reasonable questions, considering the role technology
plays in todays society.

|10/18/2007 Podcasting Expo Success
Podcasting is anything but a joke to the more than 2,000
who turned out at the 2007 Podcast and New Media Expo. In fact,
the show itself is no joke, either. It won Expo Magazines Best
New Show award in 2006 and will move its venue to Las Vegas

|10/11/2007 Podcasting is Mainstream
Three years ago, podcasting was in its infancy. Former
MTV VJ, Adam Curry and blog hero, Dave Winer, had popularized
the technology and the concept that made it all possible. There
were only a handful of shows in existence at that time and,
truth be told, the content and production quality was mostly
poor. The only thing smaller than the selection of shows was
the minimal audience they were trying to reach.
Fast- forward to the fall of 2007 and there are thousands
upon thousands of podcasts listed in iTunes and hundreds more
added each week. Sure, there are still some un-listenable amateur
shows produced in basements, but there is also a ton of professionally
produced content that is well worth checking out – many of
which promotes online businesses.
