Weekend posts
blogging: OK. No rush in of hits on the blog from my MP3mail being on Adam Curry's podcast. I didn't really expect any. I did see a couple from places I had never seen though. Texas A & M university, BellSouth, Pac Bell come to mind. Who I would like to know is the person who checks my site pretty much from the gov.ph domain - the official government portal of the Republic of the phillipines. Welcome, who ever you are. :)

Gaming: I first played Microsoft Flight Sim on a black and monochrome 286 zenith computer. The horizon was a jaggy line. Now, Flight Sim is something you could learn the basic, or beyond basic functionality of flying various types of aircraft. On Microsofts' Channel 9 there are two posts that contain video regarding Flight Sim. Meet some of the people who coded it and some of the stories on it's development. Video 1 Video 2 in streaming *.WMV. or you can save it to disk if you prefer.

Podcasting reaches Indiana
Podcasting: Article from the Ft. Wayne Indiana Journal Gazette. Explains podcasting phenom. It's actually a feed from the LA Times. The New York Times also has an article on Podcasting, but since it requires a login I am not linking to it directly.

XM vs iPod
Podcasting: This Slate article by Paul Boutin talks about XM satellite radio killing off the iPod. Not till it is two way and you can time shift what you listen to I say. The new portable walkman sized XM sattellite MyFi player is clever. But there are two issues. If you look at podcasting, it allows the podcatcher (person receiving the podcast) to cue up what they want when they want. I can listen to 'radio' broadcasts or webcasts or whatever when I want in the car. I just scroll the thumb wheel on the Zen and press play. I can then never miss a show and pause it when I get in and out of the car or carry it with me when I walk into work or when walking around Loblaws doing groceries. Till the XM can be an 'audio on demand' two way deal and fit in my pocket, it can wait. The XM device also requires a monthly $10 USD subscription so you can receive the content.

Now, a free satellite feed direct to a Zen or iPod as an RSS feed would be cool, No? :) Curiously, you can listen to the story in streaming audio here. :)

Carpe Diem
