Radio reborn

iTunes 4.9 is out and splashed across the front of Apple’s site with the tagline ‘Radio Reborn’. Why? Because it has built-in support for subscribing to podcasts. This is quite big news. More info.

I’ve been surprised how much I’ve used the RSS facilities in the Tiger version of Safari. I had assumed beforehand that the facilities in a general-purpose browser would not match up to those in NetNewsWire Lite, the RSS reader I had previously used. They don’t, but in fact Safari provides all I need – an indication on my bookmarks bar of which pages have new material.

So I expect that iTunes will now replace my copy of iPodderX Lite, though I’d still recommend the full iPodderX for anyone needing more substantial facilities.

Got Something To Say:

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
