Podcasting: put it into the OS!

So Podcasting seems to be the meme of the week.

Engadget has a detailed How-To which reminded me about the perfect candidate for an integrated app: Apple.

They do RSS in Safari, the MP3s need to go to iTunes anyway, so why not make the final step? Create a Safari RSS group for Podcasting feeds, and a special playlist in iTunes. Add a schedule for downloads, and boom – you’re done.

Come on Apple, show me how fast you can do this!
