iTunes 4.9, Podcasts, more like time shifted radio

Like all mac faithful, I downloaded the iTunes 4.9, and checked out the podcast feature. Despite all the hoopla around Podcasts and how are going to be different from radio, well the iTunes 4.9 clearly shows that it is nothing but radio timeshifted. There is ESPN, ABC News, and some other mainstream radio shows being offered as Podcasts.

The real podcasts are being passed off as “indie podcasts,” though I am glad to see Inside Mac Radio and Engadget Podcast at #3 and #4 in terms of downloads. Everything else is just some repackaged radio show/television program! That’s not podcasting is it? Its like TiVoed Radio!
