Apple reading Blogs after the Fact are they that out of touch?



You just don’t know how irritated this makes me, it seems Apple talked to a couple of Bloggers about podcasting. They discussed “tags, podcasts, RSS, XML, spec-writing, validators, and how best to give, watch, and respond to feedback on the web”.

Hello Apple we have been asking to talk to you ever since you announced your big plans, and you blew the community off. Now you do not like it that we want to smack you side the head. So your iTunes development team talks to a couple of bloggers about Podcasting please!

Do you want to communicate, here is what you need to do, start a weblog and allow comments and explain in detail what your going to do to fix this mess you have made. Second bring in a group of Podcasters and lets sit down and talk about your current implementation. Third pick up the phone and call some people in the community.

You should have thought about this before making the entire community react, to this date we cannot look at your DTD, and a specification document is still full of errors.

Here’s another thought you don’t need to be thinking about Tags you need to be talking to us about RSS.

  1. Apple, ruthless capitalist

    John Gruber’s analysis shows why Apple rushed madly to include podcasting support in iTunes, bugs and all, even while it’s still an infant technology, and small podcasting startup companies haven’t even made it to market yet.
