iTunes feed hijack?
- Try the following:
Subscribe to a show in iTunes, then, in the subscription area (not the
music store directory) right click on the show name and select "Show
Description." It will list the address of your feed.
Some shows display the locations of their actual RSS feeds, while
other feeds are hijacked by iTMS.
Dailysonic should appear as
but instead we are listed as
And that address is all screwy, its not listing our latest shows, and
it doesn't look to me like a proper RSS feed. I really would like
apple to list our feed normally, instead of hijacking it... at least
until they can work out their podcast issues.
As a side, having been at the developer end of things before, I
understand that sometimes the unexpected can make a "launch" flop. I'm
not angry at all. I think Apple made a brave move embracing
podcasting, and they just hit a snag. I'm going to continue to be
patient and give them their dev team benefit of the doubt...
I just wish they could list our feed normally in the meantime.
- Cory's gone AFK for a couple of weeks - I think I read in one of his posts
that he's in Michigan teaching until mid-July and won't be answering emails.
