Today's newsfeed from Podcasting News is making me roll my eyes in dramatic exasperation.
First, we have the breaking news that women - gasp! - use technology! Over 80% are "not afraid to play around" with tech gadgets! Nearly 50% do their own computer troubleshooting!! Shock! Awe! What's next? Dogs and cats living together?
These shocking revelations are followed by the obligatory quip about guys buying their girlfriends a plasma TV instead of jewelry. Oh, Podcasting News, you are so glib! Did you think of that all by yourselves?
Up next, and more on the topic of actual podcasting, is the question of whether podcasters will be replaced by software. I know... first women using iPods, now text-to-speech software guaranteed to bore the hell out of listeners. Duck and cover, readers, because the sky is indeed falling.
