In keeping with tradition, this Podcast was recorded on an Apple iPod - this time, the iPod U2 Special Edition - using Griffin Technology’s iTalk voice recorder.

I have really enjoyed both podcasts.  I’m looking forward to the versions with interviews/more than one host.  Keep up the good work!

there is no way that the PSP is better than any ipod.  sure, the PSP can play music, movies, games, and photos.  but the battery life is only like 2 hours.

Enjoyed this Podcast—thanks. Curious to know, however, whether you’re using a lapel mic or the iTalk’s internal mic to record it.

Also, and more generally, whether you’ve experienced any audio quality problems using the iTalk with the U2. I have both a 3G and a U2 unit, and the quality of recordings I get from the 3G/iTalk combination is significantly better than with the U2, which gives me a whirring sound in the bkg (maybe the hard drive spinning?).

For the actual podcast mp3 audio files, I would suggest filling in data for the “artist” and “album” fields of the ID3 tags. It helps keep your iTunes music organized.

And it’d be nice to put your iPodlounge logo as the album art for the podcast too. More visually appealing smile

hmmm, mikemikemike.
I have a psp and the charge on it lasts 6-8 hours. You must have got a dud or wait a minute would it be that your just another blowhard troll talking about something he has never actually seen or touched?
Psp and Ipod two very dif. things IMO there is no need to even compare them.
