Audible's Wordcast has some Critics

There have been a few interesting articles published recently about the new Audible service that uses a closed DRM to protect and to monetize podcasts. I had been looking for information on it but it turns out the reason I couldn’t really find anything was because it is still in a closed beta. I will be posting from time to time some updates here, lets start with Corantes opinions…

The blogosphere was not very pleased with Audible’s announcement. Especially the proprietary file format and the fees have caused negative reactions. It will be interesting to see if Audible makes changes to adapt to this criticism, when they finally launch the service (The service is still in closed beta.) While it is doubtful that there will be any changes in the file format, Audible might change something in the cost model.
