Santa Brought Me an Amazon Echo Dot

Look, I'm a geek, I like Gadgets, and I've heard about the Amazon Echo ($179) but when I heard about the Amazon Echo Dot (all the power of the Echo without the speaker) I was all over it (as you might imagine, being a podcaster I have a blue tooth speaker, and some audio equipment laying around).

iTunes New and Noteworthy Myths BUSTED

I was reading an article and while most of the information in it is fine, do I dare say “Good,” there was some information that was absolute crap and it is EASY to prove wrong. Case in point. If you simply launch with only one episode on your first day, and someone subscribes to your podcast, then you only get one download. BUT, if you launch with five episodes and they subscribe, then you get five downloads, which will help to raise your rankings within iTunes. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Depending on what app, the app's configuration you may...
