Mix: Your Mac Life, ABC, NBC, Winamp, Motorola

iLounge News Editor Larry Angell will be a guest on tonight’s broadcast of Your Mac Life.

Both ABC News and NBC News announced plans Tuesday to offer podcasts. They will offer a combination of original and recycled content.

Wired has posted an article on a plug-in that enables iPod owners to manage their music with Winamp.

Motorola CEO Ed Zander said this week that the iTunes phone will feature an integrated speaker for listening without headphones, and alluded that it may contain a tiny hard drive.

Winamp is so much better than iTunes as a media player.  The only thing I use iTunes for is synching.  Even then I get lots of really frigging annoying errors half the time. If I ever meet the programmer tho thought that “Unknown error -69” was a useful error message I shall personally beeyotch-slap him.  If Winamp can now do that as well as or better than iTunes than as far as I’m concerned iTunes has just become totally redundant.

the last time i tried the winamp plug-in, i thought it had potential but it was nowhere near as intuitive as itunes. sure itunes takes up more hard drive space and runs a little slower, but if you have a decent computer that shouldn’t be a big problem.  the interface alone is worth the slower reaction time.

awell, i’ll give it another try.

Isn’t a speed issue for me, my computer is plenty fast enough.  It’s all the stupid error messages that don’t tell you anything that I objected to.  As I have probably already said, outputting error numbers with no useful information is just sloppy, lazy programming.
