Yahoo Podcast Directory to be Shutdown

Apple to Create Newton 2.0 PDA?

yahoo podcast logoYahoo has announced that on October 31st they will effectively be shutting down their podcast directory. A message on their website reads “Yahoo! apologizes deeply, but we will be closing down the Podcasts site on Oct. 31, 2007.” This Yahoo service allowed you to search and listen to podcasts, rate them, and subscribe to certain feeds.

As mentioned in my article about Odeo acquiring FireAnt, podcasting has not become a huge, mainstream hit. Is this some foreshadowing of the future of podcasting or just Yahoo’s attempt to restructure and focus on what they are good at? Yahoo has been shutting down other services in order to steer the company in a new direction.

Who here actually uses and enjoys podcasting? I know I have only listened to a few podcasts here and there and do not subscribe to anything. I am not sure why I do not and why I prefer blogs over podcasts. Maybe because blogs are easier to use and more convenient? I’m not sure.
