Been playing with Odeo, a new mp3 audio show site (podcast’s – a name i’m starting to hate).

They have some decent content and a very nice system to subscribe to channels and then sync up to your local itunes app. Even your local application preferences are stored online seamlessly – very nice ! Supposedly they have a series of tools which facilitates the creation of audio shows – but it isn’t out yet (online studio – phone posting – and feed creation / hosting).

I’m curious how Odeo will be affected by the launch of iTunes 4.9 yesterday (as people might just forgo parts of it altogether and just browse using the itunes interface).

ps. Don’t forget .. no one likes a heavy podcast breather.
