Mix: Podcasting FAQ, Chicago 12, iPod PowerBook, Prestopod

Apple has posted a helpful page of frequently asked questions on podcasting.

Daring Fireball’s John Gruber points out that this week’s simplification of the iPod lineup brings an end to the use of Chicago 12 as the device’s font. “The color-display iPods use Myriad, the Minis use Espy Sans, and the Shuffles use, well, nothing.”

Apple has apparently filed a patent for a laptop with that uses an iPod mini for its touch pad.

Prestopod is a new podcasting service for radio stations that will “help community and independent radio stations reach a wider audience of music lovers, is designed to be simple, fast and cost-effective.”

Personally, the iPod Mini in Notebook idea does not sound like a good idea to me.  Too many people would be angry at Apple when they find out that you have to buy a Mini to get the full functionality of the notebook.

As for the chicago font, I too will miss it.  I like the font.  I recently got a new PowerBook, and I couldn’t believe that the font was not pre-installed in OS X.
