      More reports of increased transfer rates appearing. Not sure what
      impact this may have on videopodcasting, especially any hosted
      on .Mac and subscribable with iTunes, but some time back this was writ:

      "On December 10, 2005, Ryan Katz reported for Think Secret, "Apple is
      planning to unveil a robust new content distribution system in
      January at Macworld Expo alongside its revamped media-savvy Mac mini.
      The new content system and related media deals, which will include
      feature-length content, expanded television offerings, and more, will
      further cement Apple's increasing lead in digital media delivery.
      Apple's new technology will deliver content such that it never
      actually resides on the user's hard drive. Content purchased will be
      automatically made available on a user's iDisk, which Front Row 2.0
      will tap into. When the user wishes to play the content, robust
      caching technology Apple previously received a patent for will serve
      it to the users computer as fast as their Internet connection can
      handle. The system will also likely support downloading the video
      content to supported iPods but at no time will it ever actually be
      stored on a computer's hard drive. This method, which will be every
      bit as simple and straightforward for consumers as the iTunes Music
      Store is now, poses a number of advantages over Apple's current pay-
      once-download-once system, including saving users' hard drive space
      and essentially providing a secure back-up of everything purchased."
