The iTunes Store has reached one billion total podcast subscriptions, spread out over 250,000 separate podcasts. While not every podcast subscription is through iTunes — some are from third-party apps, such as Instacast — it’s still an indicator that podcasting is a booming medium. Despite the iOS Podcasts app having a rocky history and Apple discontinuing the Podcast Producer tool in OS X Server after Lion Server, podcast support remains prominent in many of Apple’s products, including GarageBand, iTunes, and the iPhone, iPod, iPad, and Apple TV. follow link
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
