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.

Kroc,

My comments are directed at OSNews as a whole, not you personally. I understand that you are volunteering and I appreciate the work that you do. I also understand that you are not directly responsible for the current website.

That being said, OSNews as a whole has recently published several chiding articles pointing out that other websites are using patent-encumbered file formats. However, OSNews itself is using a patent-encumbered file format. My previous comment was merely to point out this hypocrisy. It was definitely not directed toward you personally, but towards OSNews as a whole. If OSNews as a whole is unable to provide its content in non-patent-encumbered formats, it seems incredibly hypocritical for OSNews articles to deride other websites for doing the same.
