i tunes 4.6,4.7,4.8 were kind of a joke no real updates
but 4.9 lets you get podcasts, and granted there are things like like ipodder, but they are a pain to use.
there are now 3000 pod casts (i have a ton already and most of mine are an hour long or more). and that kind of easy to find free portable audio content is really hard to beat. abcnews, espn are just some of the names that post free content there.
"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox
