OSNews, Generic OSes We fought you off for as long as possible, but in the end we had to give in :) What decided it was that OSnews is not a mainstream source of news like Engadget or even sites where they actually employ people, we are not an entity like AOL that fails to grasp the reality of the web today and the issues surrounding the technology landscape. We have the technical background, and the community to boot to know that when we criticise others, we had better be doing the right thing ourselves. Get the feed here.

Podcasts waste time

In spirit of Audio for Everyone, would you pretty please provide plaintext as alternative format for me?

I'm an OS News regular. Your podcasts may be spectacular but I wouldn't know because I won't waste my time listening instead of reading. Reading is faster and enables skimming which you can't do with audio.

Ergo I don't get why anyone would prefer audio to text (except as an alternative) so popularity of podcasts is beyond my understanding.
