Podcasts Sans PC

Why it's taken so long to get MP3 players with wireless capabilities, I'll never understand, but I'm glad to see the trend finally emerging with this year's CES announcements. While Slacker's player delivers custom radio stations, Haier is going after the podcast crowd (is there still a podcast crowd?). The ibiza Rhapsody player starts at $200 and automatically updates your podcast subscriptions anytime you're near a Wi-Fi hotspot. A small thing, maybe, but at least it's another weapon in the battle against cable clutter.—Mike Haney
