Podcasts on iPod

Recently my 2nd generation iPod Nano got broken and after a little research at Apple’s site I decided to buy an iPod Touch.

I went to a store here in Brazil and bought one only to discover that it was a 1st generation iPod Touch while the one shown on Apple’s site was a 2nd generation one.

The 2nd generation iPod has some features I really wanted so I asked for a friend to bring me one from the US:

  • Built-in sensor for Nike+
  • Hardware buttons for volume
  • Speaker

By the way, it also has a faster ARM processor.



Before getting the new toy, I used to automatically download audio podcasts via iTunes. I also used to manually download videos from Channel 9 to watch on my desktop. Now I setup iTunes to download automatically all the audio and video podcasts I’m interested in. Here are some of the technical ones:

I have been interested in computers since I got my hands on a magazine about digital electronics back in 1983 and programming them has been paying the bills since 1991. Having focused on Microsoft-centric technology stacks for the best part of two decades, in recent years I’ve been educating myself on open source technologies such as Linux, networking and the open web platform.
