Yahoo Adds Podcast Search
According to Antone Gonsalves (TechWeb News), Yahoo Inc. on Monday launched in beta a podcast search service, heightening the web portal’s competition with Apple Computer Inc.’s iTunes music service.
Yahoo Podcasts enables consumers to search a directory of 10s of thousands of the audio programs.
In launching the service, Yahoo, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., adds capabilities that strengthen its position against Apple. The Cupertino, Calif., company lets consumers search and subscribe to podcasts through its iTunes music service, which is a downloadable desktop application.
