completely obsolete the idea with the iTunes phone. If they allow
wireless access to the iTMS, including the podcasting section,
nobody's going to want to pay more for less functionality.
If users intend for their phone to be their podcatcher, they can buy
an SD/miniSD/Transflash card and either set up podcatching software
on their device or copy podcasts from their home PC. To be honest, I
don't see the value proposition here.

about a year ago. I can copy anything onto a little card and then slip
that into the phone and put it wherever I wat in the phone. I can use
ringtones and whatever. My friend just got the updated version
recently and I tried to give her some of my ringtones (since when you
replace a phone you lose all your old ringtones) but the copy feature
was not available. That's gotta be criminal, not letting you use a
feature already in the machine, to keep you from using your own stuff?
