The new iPhone update is pretty good – the maps app has street view, public transit – but best of all you can now download podcasts over Wi-Fi and wireless. I’ve been doing podcasts in some manner for over 5 years and this is what I’ve been waiting for!

This update contains many bug fixes and improvements, including the following: * Enhancements to Maps -Google Street View -public transit and walking directions -display address of dropped pins -share location via email * Enhancements to Mail -resolved isolated issues with Schedule fetching of email * Improved stability and performance of Safari * Podcasts are now available for download in iTunes application (over Wi-Fi and cellular network) * Decrease in call set-up failures and drops * Improved sound quality of visual voicemail messages * Pressing the Home button from any Home screen takes you to the first Home screen * Preference to turn on/off auto-correction in Keyboard Settings

Keep reading for some screenshots of the MAKE podcast (we’re #8 in tech, woo!). Here’s something I’ve seen anyone note yet, the podcast client for the iPhone? It can *see* the PDFs in iTunes but cannot download them, darn!
