06/27/2006 Podcasting Predictions
While it is a little early for technology predictions for 2007, it appears others are making podcasting predictions.

According to Bill Flitter, founder and vice president of marketing at Pheedo, a darn-near perfect storm of RSS developments will hit the market and gel in Q1 of 2007 to allow B2B podcasting to mature in terms of audience reach, measurement, and value. That in turn will drive more companies to create better, more useful podcast content that will get that big old virtuous adoption pattern churning along.

06/26/2006 Podcasters Upset Over Proposed Rules
The UK is backing a controversial new broadcasting treaty that opponents say gives big media companies new rights over content.

Intellectual property campaigners and podcasters oppose the new treaty. They claim that it puts more control over content in the hands of big business.

The treaty is the subject of discussions in Barcelona today at a conference organised by UN Agency WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organisation). Opponents say the conference was called too quickly – just eight days ago – for dissenting voices to be able to take part. Even the supportive UK Patents Office told OUT-LAW that it had received its invitation too late to attend.

06/20/2006 Europe Trying to Change iTunes
A Norwegian complaint accusing Apple's iTunes Music Store of breaching that country's law may turn out to be a twist on the old debate between government and business – not one government, however, but many.

Following a similar complaint by France, Norway seems ready to be joined by both Denmark and Sweden in making the case that iTunes needs to be modified in order to do business in those countries. In Norway, the government has demanded that Apple revise its iTunes Terms of Service by August 1 -- an extension from June 21 -- or else face fines and possible prosecution.

06/19/2006 iPod Cramming
Three hours before a start against Florida, Colorado Rockies pitcher Jason Jennings sits in front of his locker, puts on his headphones and stares at his video iPod.

He isn't watching the latest Coldplay video or catching up on an episode of "Alias" as a way to relax before the game.

Jennings is doing some last-minute cramming: The Rockies' video staff has downloaded every Marlins hitter into his iPod, and Jennings is figuring out how to pitch to them. He watches frames of himself delivering the pitch, followed by the result of the play. Everything else is weeded out.
