Podcasts Back in August of 2009, the OSnews team spent 3 full hours discussing Apple. In the course of discussion, we spent some time talking about the then-mythical "Apple Tablet." So, 5 months later, how did we do? Were we accurate in our predictions? How did you envision the Tablet, long before the nonsensically named "iPad" became a reality? This clip, which I've called "Episode 20.x" and inserted into cannon retroactively, is pulled, unaltered, from the original podcast.

Because unlike companies I’m not being paid to do this and my time is extremely limited. I work an insane amount of hours sometimes and I spend my day off doing the podcast. Uploading the files is slow, and using the back end to write and publish the podcast is also slow and clumsy. Producing an OGG alternative would add an hour to the turnaround time, and I’m not willing to add that when there simply isn’t the practical demand yet (I’ve yet to hear someone who physically has no access to any device capable of playing MP3), and that I will get the server to transcode and publish OGG with the OSn5 rewrite.
