My Thoughts on Device-Side Podcatchers

I recently wrote about Podcast Ready, which is a device-side podcatcher a while ago. Initially I wasn't to thrilled about the idea of my MP3 player having intelligence on it, but I've played with Podcast Ready's MyPodder application a bit and it turns out that I quite like it.

There is one major problem with it, though. At the moment it's Windows only. Well, as a Linux user that's a big problem for me. Regardless of the fact that MyPodder is stored on the player, it's still a Windows app and needs Windows to run.

I think this is just a step on a longer road. There are plenty of devices out there that have their own operating system. I'd like to see a device-side podcatcher on those devices. Right now I have to plug into a Windows Internet-connected computer to update my subscriptions with MyPodder. If my device had it's own OS and MyPodder running on it instead of a computer, then I would only need the computer to supply the Internet connection and voila! MyPodder would truly be OS independent.
