The IETF has released ‘The Atom Syndication Format’ as Request for Comments (RFC) #4287 in the Standards Track. The document provides an official publication for Atom as a standard XML-based Web content and metadata syndication format. Atom is considered by many as the latest evolutionary stage of development for “RSS”, which enjoys wide use in a number of not-standardized versions. Atom is an XML-based document format that describes lists of related information known as “feeds”. Feeds are composed of a number of items, known as “entries”, each with an extensible set of attached metadata. For example, each entry has a title. The primary use case that Atom addresses is the syndication of Web content such as weblogs and news headlines to Web sites as well as directly to user agents.

iTunes, my default music player for everything is starting to piss me off. The new feature where it stops downloading podcasts because you haven’t listened to a particular podcast in the last few days is really annoying. Have you experienced this? If you don’t listen to a podcast for a few days, iTunes stops downloading the latest episodes and annotates the subscription with a ‘!‘.
Clicking on the ‘!‘ brings up this wonderful dialog box:
I know someone thought this would be a useful feature but it is really pissing me off. Why not offer an option in the preferences for this? If you can’t manage your own subscriptions, let iTunes do it but if you have a brain and a big hard-drive, I’ll download anything and everything you tell me. Wow. That was harsh – I really must be missing Hani’s bile now that he’s good team player and part of the JCP 😉

I read about Domains.live.com, Microsoft’s new free email service on Scoble’s blog last week. Domains.live.com is a pretty neat service where they host email and IM for you for a domain that you already own. The list of free offerings includes 20 email accounts within your domain (instead of hotmail.com or msn.com), 250 MB inbox, Hotmail web accessibility along with the standard junk mail filtering and virus scanning.
So you have a domain and you want to use Hotmail’s email and IM functionality instead of your ISP’s base offerings. To do that with Domains.live.com, you modify the MX record for your domain name and set the mail exchange host provided by Microsoft for your domain name. Once you make your DNS change and update the TTL on your side, Domains.live.com verifies the DNS change and then you are ready to start creating accounts. You can create up to 20 email address for each domain and the process really works well. To check out the functionality, I updated the DNS record for one of my host and everything worked like a charm. I was able to setup an email address and then log into Hotmail and MSN Messenger using that address and everything worked great. Kudos to Microsoft and the Custom Domains Team.
My only complaint is that you cannot use the new email addresses created using domains.live.com with Microsoft Outlook or any other POP3 email client. To do that, you need to buy some Hotmail upgrade for $20. That is just lame. Come on Scoble – You’ve got to be able to work your magic and change this. This is really a great and innovative idea by Microsoft and trying to make $20 off someone just ruins it.
