Im with you on this, agree.

Not sure if it will last a year, I heard something about another ipod
with a wider screen for some point in the future, but who knows if
thats true.

But yeah, even though I regularily talk about higher resolution and
higher quality videoblogs as a valid thing, Im not unhappy with 320x240.

It is indeed a great leveler, it means we can compete, though the
material apple chooses to highlight within itunes podcast/video
directory is likely to resemble more of the traditional filter that
gives the big players the advantage.

Another thing itunes stuff does is break the world up. If I look at
the top 100 podcasts in the UK through itunes, it isnt the same as the
USA. All the countries have their own seperate stats. 

That might be relevant actually, because some videobloggers may end up
 being popular in countries they dont expect, for strange
cultural-content or humour matching reasons. I dont know if podcasters
have caught onto this issue, but my tip for anybody casting through
itunes and interested in stats and what material is allegedly most
popular, is this:

Go in through the music store in itunes rather than the podcast
directory button. At the very bootom of the front page there is a
dropdown to change country. Change to another country and then click
on the podcasts link within the itunes store. You should then see
which podcast feeds are in the top 100 for that country. I tried this
yesterday in iTunes 5, dunno if its the same in 6.

One things for sure, this announcement has given me verbal diahorrea,
a word I cant spell.
