Songbird is a new desktop media player application that is being billed as an open source alternative to iTunes and the Windows Media Player.

The New York Times has an article on protecting and repairing your iPod with suggestions from iLounge Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Horwitz.

The Globe and Mail looks at the threat of “Podslurping,” in which iPods and other devices could be used to steal data from companies.

Maine’s Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum is now providing iPods to visitors as part of an audio tour through its newest exhibit, This Extraordinary Paradise: Living in Northwest Greenland.

Am I the only person who gets a DLL error when attempting to start the Songbird program? It seems to install fine, but not work.

Psxp: I am currently working on an article about podcrapping- It is about those co-workers that take their iPods to the bathroom with them and spend way too much time in there. 

So hands off that term- okay?
