    Great show…keep it up!!!

    I want to comment on the rumor of Apple designing a 2-button mouse. I must admit I just switched to the Mac and I would have switched a year ago if I would have realized that a Mac would support 2-button mouse. Once I found a mouse at, I ordered my Mac immediately. Keep in mind as a PC user, my only experience with a Mac was using someone else’s Mac. So all I ever used was the 1-button mouse and I could not get used to it.

    So, in my opinion, Apple including a 2-button mouse (w/ scroll wheel) will attract more PC users and convert them to “switchers”. I LOVE my Mac!!!

    MacMice has great products. I should probably mention them on the show. I agree Apple NEEDS a 2 button mouse if they really want switchers. The other thing most people don’t know is that you can use just about any 2 button USB mouse with your Mac and you don’t even really need drivers! Just plug it in and it works!

    Bookmarkable 4G iPod bug.

    I just wanted to add that at least the way that iPodderX makes the bookmarkable files is by converting the mp3s into AACs inside iTunes. So once you set iTunes correctly to encode AAC files in stereo it will all be done automatically and you won’t need to reencode new mono podcasts that are downloaded.
