Gear Live Chris Pirillo ShowEven more audio love for Gear Live editors this week. A few days ago we let you know that Edwin was on the David Lawrence Show to discuss how Google Maps got him out of his traffic ticket fiasco. That same day, I was on The Chris Pirillo show where I also discussed Google Maps, along with the Tom Bihn Brain Cell, the Sony PSP, and a bunch of other tech and gadget stories. Read on for links to download the audio, of you can subscribe to The Chris Pirillo Show via iTunes.

Participatory Culture Tiffiniy ChengGet ready for a new way to present your work. Peer-to-peer publishing with BitTorrent means file size and cost are not issues anymore, so you can offer fullscreen video with no bandwidth costs. That is the midset behind the Participatory Culture project. We sat with Tiffiniy Cheng of Participatory Culture to discuss bringing the media back into the hands of the people, publishing video on the Internet, and President Bush’s pirated music. Click here to download the MP3, or you can just subscribe to the Gear Live Podcast feed. Conversely, you can now subscribe to us directly from iTunes - be sure you have version 4.9.

Gear Live Podcast iTunesSo, a few days ago we told you about how iTunes wasn’t able to read our RSS feed for the Gear Live Podcast. Today I am happy to tell you that the situation has changed. You may now subscribe to the Gear Live Podcast through iTunes using this link. Now that we have that squared away, it is now just a matter of getting out RSS feed up to snuff with all the iTunes related tags. Crap. Nonetheless, go ahead and subscribe like mad.

Description The last few days have certainly been big news for the iPod and iTunes. Apple dropped the new iPod color to its stores, and released iTunes 4.9 to the public. This has sent a surprising number of ripples through the music and Apple communities. iPodLounge has surprised us and given a coveted “A” review rating to the new line of iPods and has a very exhaustive review of the new color players. With the new iTunes comes easy iPod support of podcasts, and the world agrees that aside from a few minor glitches its the one of the coolest things to happen to iTunes since, well, iTunes. Apple has also extended the RSS/XML format a little bit to enable chapters and other metadata to be included in the XML file to describe the podcast. Apple has of course also announced plans to give iPods away to qualifying students - what a great way to help grow their brand in what will become the influential market of tomorrow. Finally there are rumors floating around that the iPod shuffle is about to get a bump to 2GB and 4GB sizes, and the mini is going to get one of Hitachi’s new 8GB drives. All of this kind of ticks off this one Gear Live writer who just bought a (now suddenly out of date) 4th generation iPod not two weeks ago.

iTunes 4.9 Gear Live downloaded Apples updated new version of iTunes with its much lauded support for podcasts and is impressed (to a point) so far. The install went smoothly (as most installs and upgrades do on OSX) and in minutes I was up and running with iTunes 4.9. Immediately upon opening the updated application of course we went to check out the preferences panel for the configuration options of the new podcast features. The preferences panel lets a user select how often to check for new podcasts, and how long to keep each episode for.

Okay guys, I didn’t know that this many people were into our podcast show, but the amount of email I got asking why it wasn’t in there proved otherwise. Here is the skinny: Gear Live runs on Expression Engine - the CMS software that I feel is the best available on the market. That being said, there is some sort of odd problem with iTunes 4.9 reading our EE generated RSS feed. The feed works perfectly fine, and every other RSS aggregator/podcast software that I have tried today recognizes it perfectly. The people over at pMachine are looking into it, and hopefully soon you will see the Gear Live Podcast listed in the directory.
