Deallocated Objects – The Case of Missing Podcasts in iOS 6:

An Apple-hosted Podcasts service could help to further blur the lines between professional and independent content providers, giving this type of content the same “bump” that indie developers got with App Store


IMO this would kill proper independent podcasts. Not actually but, we already fight with both new producers and non geek listeners to get them to realize that podcasting does not equal iTunes. My fear is Apple will make such a compelling platform true podcasts would be relegated to their own sort of dark net.
