To celebrate the milestone, Apple has highlighted some of the most popular podcasts on the iTunes Store since Podcasts on iTunes launched in 2005.

According to Apple, there are over 250,000 podcasts on the iTunes Store, spanning 100 different languages. Those podcasts amount to eight million individual episodes to date.

"From comedy to hard news to sports to innovative content and so much more, podcasting has transformed the global media landscape," Apple says on its new podcast promotion.

Among the highlighted podcasts in Australia are Nova 969's Hughesy and Kate, Hamish & Andy, and Media Watch, as well as Dr Karl K on triplej, Sydney Opera House - Ideas at the House, and The Patch.

Apple updated its iOS Podcasts app in March, bringing with it a redesigned interface that foretold the design of iOS 7, as well as new features like playlists, custom stations and enhanced iCloud support.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
