iPod question

My girlfriend wants to buy me an iPod that is compatable with Podcasts, but we're not sure which ones are capable. A little help?

Podcasts are just MPEGs. As long as you get a player that plays MPEG files (which all iPods do) you'll be able to listen to Podcasts.

Yes. ALL iPods are compatible with Podcasts.

The only catch is that the [new] shuffle will only play 1) everything in order, or 2) randomly, but it has playlist capability so simply make a new playlist with your podcast(s) and go right to that playlist by holding down the play button for a few moments.

[I have the new shuffle and love it.]

If someone is buying it for you, go for the touch.

The Touch is cool, but too big and fragile. I plan on using it on the bike(away from cars and people).

Thanks to all for answering my question.

For on the bike purposes, I think the ipod nano is the perfect choice. I have two and love 'em.

skip the formalities, get the iphone.

barring that, most newer MP3 players can play mpeg files.

I was going to suggest getting the iPod Touch with the camera and cell phone functionality.

PodCast = Audio file. Nothing mysterious or even Apple-centric about it. Just a silly word.

(I loves my 3G)
