Mix: AAPL, 32 million iPods, O’Reilly podcasts, Spod

Shares of Apple (AAPL) rose $4.81, or more than 6%, to $80.86 on Tuesday following the introduction of several new Mac products and iPod accessories at Macworld Expo.

Referring to Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ remark that Apple sold 32 million iPods in 2005, technology analyst Tim Bajarin of Creative Strategies said: “I think they can sell another 32 million iPods this year. I don’t see the iPod phenomenon slowing down one bit.”

O’Reilly Media has announced the launch of its O’Reilly Podcast programming with “Distributing the Future” and “Make Audio and Video” Podcast shows, FOO Casts (Friends of O’Reilly Podcasting), “In Our Ears” highlights, “Pick of the Week” and more.

Apple has sued Liquid Air Tab—the company behind Spodradio, a service that allows users to download podcasts to their Nokia mobiles—over the word “spod.”
