Something that didn’t dawn on me initially, but has since found its way into the mush I call a brain about the Apple / Podcast situation is this:
Does Apple even have a podcast?
Now, I don’t have an iPod…I have an iRiver. Why? Well, FM radio, recording ability, etc that iPods just don’t have. So, I’m not in iTunes, etc but I did search the Apple website for a podcast. Nothing.
So, if someone knows about a podcast they do, I apologize, but I can’t find one.
That said, they are looking to control the name of something that they don’t even feel has enough relevance/importance to participate in themselves! Why wouldn’t they go the other way and try to somehow incorporate their name/logo into a standardized “podcast” logo that anyone/everyone with a podcast can use?
This is “old time” business practices gone bad. The heavy-handed, do what I want or I’ll sue type stuff. Bad form.
