Mix: iTunes podcasts, Calling iTunes, Make magazine, Nokia

The iTunes top 100 podcast ranking system appears to be easily manipulated: “It looks like iTunes doesn’t record how many people are actually subscribed to a podcast but rather how many times the button is pressed.”

Slate’s Timothy Noah, who seeks out hard-to-find customer service phone numbers, is on a mission to find a number for the iTunes Music Store.

Phillip Torrone of Make magazine writes: “We’re doing enhanced podcasts that not only have spoken word versions of articles in Make, but the full pages of the magazine in the podcast.”

Standard & Poor’s Equity Research says it’s possible that Nokia “could gain more market share if its planned launches of MP3 player-enabled handsets take share from iPods.”

For the person with the strange iTunes bill, why not just take it up with your credit card company and check out when/how the chargers were made. Of course this is no excuse for there not being a direct line number to music store support, but I would be more concerned about errenous billing on my credit card and go straight to the credit card about it than trying to muck around with were the errenous charges came from.

I might also ask my children how they got a hold of my CC number… Hmm…. :-)

If one thing takes share from another then it will have more share. Duh?
