June 28th, 2005 might go down in the history of media. It was the day Apple announced they were taking mainstream podcasting by including support for Podcasts in iTunes 4.9 and with syncing to the iPod. As we are still going to be in the world of iTunes being dismantled macOS, I'm thinking about it.
Apple® today is doing it Podcasting mainstream by building everything Podcasts right into iTunes® 4.9, the latest versi of its award winning digital music software and line music store. iTunes users can now easily subscribe to over 3,000 free podcasts and have each newly arrived at the Internet to their computer and iPod®.
"Apple is taking mainstream podcasting by building it right into iTunes," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Podcasting is the next generati of radio, and users can now subscribe to over 3,000 free Podcasts and have each new episode delivered to the Internet to their computer and iPod."
