Apple today announced that in just two days iTunes customers have subscribed to more than one million Podcasts from the new iTunes Podcast Directory. iTunes 4.9 lets users find, subscribe, manage and listen to Podcasts. Users can "now have each new episode of their favorite Podcasts automatically delivered over the Internet to their computer and iPod." iPods now offer an easy to use Podcast menu, including bookmarking within a Podcast and the ability to display color Podcast artwork. "With the release of iTunes 4.9, listeners are voting with their ears," said Adam Curry, co-founder of the PodShow Podcast Network.
