The other day before I left for NECC, I upgraded my main machine’s iTunes to 4.9 to take advantage of the podcasting features … if you recall, my library got crushed. I got back last night and reimported all my music — minus the playlists, ratings, and play counts. That is a little bothersome, but you do what you do. It is actually giving me a cahnce to sort of “reset” my musical life. I just did my podcast subscriptions and resynced my iPod — yeah that got crushed too. At any rate, other than my little issue, the new iTunes with podcasting is great!
