Apple releases iTunes 4.9
Apple today released iTunes 4.9, a major update to its audio application for organizing/sharing music, purchasing songs, and managing iPod music. "With iTunes 4.9, you can now browse and subscribe to podcasts from within the iTunes Music Store. Podcasts are frequently updated radio-style shows downloadable over the Internet. You can also transfer podcasts to iPod, for listening on the go." It is available via the Mac OS X software update. Readers note that once iTunes 4.9 is installed, a new "Podcasts" heading appears under Source; however, there are not any Podcast Directories currently appearing.
