GLONO on your iPod?

I just read an article about making e-books for iPods. What do you guys think of that? Does anyone actually want to read their iPod? Scrolling all that text and shit? Seems cumbersome as shit to me...

Which reminds me that we've been thinking of doing a GLONO PodCast. Anybody into this? What are your favorite podcasts and what makes them good?

I've subscribed to WNYC to listen to radio that I used to stream at work. I don't want to read a lot of text on the tiny screen. Paper is much easier on my eyes.

a glono new music podcast would be a great way to hear new sounds with snarky commentary.

i like the idea of a podcast, but i don't think that i would want to be troubled to read text on that little screen. as it is, i dig that i can see an album cover, albeit a tiny one, and that brings the record geek out in me during my interaction with my ipod. still, i can't believe that i would get too much satisfaction from reading tiny text on it. as it is, i tried reading glono on a blackberry and totall got frustrated with it and never tried again.

Podcast = GOOD
iBook = BAD.

I'd love to have GloNo-approved selections streaming onto my Pod, although I don't listen to any Podcasts normally so someone will have to give this technologically ignorant youth a hand.

I'd be into a podcast, too. iTunes is supposed to be adding iPodder-type functions later this summer, making it even less complicated.

I don't even use the calendar stuff on my iPod--the screen is just too small.

a pod cast is sort of a recorded radio-type broadcast that you can download and listen to on your iPod (or other mp3 player of choice)

Yeah, count me in for a podcast. Skip the iBook, tho - I have a Shuffle.

PS - Apple's doing something to incorporate Podcasts into the next version of iTunes. Not sure exactly how it's going to work, but the format will be a lot like the Music Store.
