Apple's latest milestone reminds us that podcasting is still very much alive today.
Although having a high number of podcast subscriptions doesn't really guarantee that much "listens," Apple proudly announced that its iTunes Store has already reached 1 billion podcast subscriptions.
The gargantuan number, Apple says, are spread across 8 million episodes and over 250,000 podcasts in 100 languages. Podcasting has been around for many years, and Apple managed to keep the trend flowing beginning with the launching of the first-generation iPod.
Today, Apple is still making room for more podcast subsriptions, thanks to its apps on iOS, not to mention Apple's smart team that curates its Podcasts and the nifty podcast support on the Apple TV.
