Mac Roundtable 2006.07.13 – 011

Filed under: Podcast — macreviewcast @ 5:55 pm

Welcome to Episode 11 of the Mac Roundtable

This week we discuss the iTunes experience and what it’s done to your CD collection. Are we spending less on CD’s and more on iTunes, or are we just grabbing our music from other online sources? Then we look at the iPod and where it’s going from here and when it will finally get there. Next topic is, what print magazines we’re still receiving and why? Has the online Mac news and magazines killed off the print? Finally, the next part of our podcasting confessions. This episode we talk about our podcasting hardware and how it’s progressed since we first started podcasting.

Steve Stanger from the The Mac Attack was missing in action when a storm knocked him offline. But join hosts Joseph Nilo from the MacPro Podcast, Tim Verpoorten from MacReviewcast, Adam Christianson from the MacCast

  2. I don’t know what’s wrong with Libsyn, the feed gave me the right file, the right file is MRT011.mp3 as it says to the link. I have no idea why Libsyn is playing the wrong file?

  3. Just thought you guys should know that the podcast download on iTunes is messed up and had me download something called Bath Talk which is not what I was expecting at all when I downloaded this podcast. I know this is not your fault but I wanted to make sure you guys knew that the feed or something is messed up, thanks.

  11. Yes, I’m afraid we’re in a Libsyn nightmare here. I just tried the link off the article here and I received the correct podcast, I downloaded it in iTunes, and I received the correct podcast, so maybe it’s working now… please have patience, Libsyn will get it fixed soon if it’s not already fixed.

  12. The problem should be resolved, here is the libsyn announcement…
    This morning, betweeen the hours of approximately 12:45am eastern to 1:45, Libsyn servers experienced a crucial distribution error on its CDN that resulted in the erroneous distribution of files on some user accounts. The problem has been identified and resolved, however during the time of the error period, affected user accounts may have had the wrong files distributed to subscriptions and direct downloads that called for files.

    We are extremely sorry for the confusion and surprise that this may cause the subset of audiences that have been affected by this unusual error. While this was a temporary and limited issue, it may have real unintended consequences to some individuals; we fully understand the magnitude of delivering the wrong file, even one mis-matched file is one too many.

  13. I just downloaded the new episode via iTunes again and its the right file this time.

  14. well, i downloaded via iTunes at around 8:30 a.m. EDT and got the Chinese Pod podcast so the weirdness must be cached somewhere.
