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.”
