Good and Bad Design

Like I mentioned last night in class I think that iTunes is a great podcast aggregrator for people wanting to put podcasts on their iPods.

Positives: the music store interface makes the whole podcast world seem really commerical, fun, accessible, hip. A lot of people have sort of crossed their eyes at me when I have encouraged them to listen to such-and-such podcast as they are not on iTunes and podcasts are just too weird. But when I can sit down with them and show them things work so smoothly and they seem to really find the interface to be okay.

Very easy to navigate

The little pieces of "album art" for the podcasts are just great
