Apple Back in the Spotlight

As a mac man and an Apple stockholder, it should be clear that I’m a fan of one of the most innovative companies in the history of technology. So, of course, I’m pleased to see Apple back in the spotlight as evidenced by the current cover story in Fortune magazine, How Big Can Apple Get?

Wired: The End of Radio… Really!

Right. Podcasting is just a piece of the replacement of radio by “on-demand audio.” Thanks to Tivo, podcasting and a slew of other digital technologies, combined with smaller, cheaper, faster electronics, media is finally coming into a new generation where we can see and hear what we want, when we want it.

Podcasting Builds Momentum, Gets Defined

OK. I admit it. Maybe podcasting IS the beginning of the personalized webcasting that I wrote about for years in Videography. I was impressed with the NY Times coverage this weekend… snappy examples… Tired of TiVo? Beyond Blogs? Podcasts Are Here. I take as a sign of emerging yet premature maturity 😉 that there are […]

Podcasting Maybe Bigger Than I Thought

According to this ClickZ article MP3 Player Adoption at Tipping Point, there are now 22 million Americans with iPod’s or other MP3 players and this market has reached a “tipping point” that is making it viable as a distribution platform. I’ll sure be amazed if podcasting takes off. Probably we just need more people with […]
