That's not really the same.  I subscribe to several different podcasts that 
update on different schedules.  They are mostly tech-news related so I always 
want to listen to the most recent, going on to older material as I catch up. 
And since I listen in the car I'd prefer to have the content pre-loaded and 
sorted appropriately in a playlist so it doesn't take any fiddling to play.  The 
itunes->ipod scheme gets the details right automatically, including remembering 
the position in an older but unfinished piece and deleting after the content has 
been heard or skipped.  The piece I'd like to eliminate is the need to sync 
daily to a specific computer to make it work - but so far haven't seen any other 
software that gets the concepts right.
