Deborah Conrad, VP and director of Team Apple at Intel, has commented on the use of an Intel chip in an iPod. “I don’t think you’re going to see anything soon,” she said. But when it comes to future Apple devices, “that’s where we get very, very excited.”

According to a recent consumer survey by Bridge Data, more than 80% of podcast downloads never make it to a portable audio player—they are listened to on a PC or deleted first.

New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has filed a lawsuit against Gratis Internet, the company behind FreeiPods.com, alleging it sold millions of email addresses illegally.

O’Reilly has announced the release of the fourth edition of iPod & iTunes: The Missing Manual by J.D. Biersdorfer. The updated book retails for $25.
