OK, hold up. Now get this.............
After I'm ready to give up & just dump the podcasts. Keep in mind I'd been clicking on every menu available to see what (if anything) was or was not happening. After I click on UNSUBSCRIBE to just get rid of it all, the top window in iTunes shows me that it's "converting podcast". (Looks like it's gonna take a while by the progress meter) Never ONCE in the 30 minutes before this did the top window EVARRR show me it was doing so.
So then I think to myself.........."Hey, the Steve
#1.) Why not show this in the top window BEFORE the 30 minutes somebody spends trying to figure out WTF's going on??
#2.) Why not pop up some kind of dialogue box for those that don't even CONSIDER that their podcasts might need to be converted so that they'd know that this needs to be done before they can simply drag them or sync them over to their iPod as just about ANY soccer mom I can possibly THINK of would assume???
(It ain't like iTunes doesn't BOMBARD us with dialogue boxes already!!!!)
