Podcasting Giving you Eye Strain? 0

Day 11: Lighting – Your Podcast (and Eyes) May Need It

A few months ago I was talking with someone who was complaining about being overly-tired after every podcast. They didn’t know why – other tasks didn’t drain them like podcasting did. After a few questions I found out this person podcasted in the dark – only light being from the computer monitors. That is not good for the eyes or the podcast.

Are Podcasters Going to Get Sued? Personal Audio LLC Attacks Carolla, HowStuffWorks

Editor’s Note: I made a change to the article to point more toward Ace Broadcasting. Keep in mind, NO PODCAST IS GETTING SUED. Only Podcast hosting companies.  Earlier today news spread of the company that sued Apple back in 2011 is at it again. They have issued lawsuits to ACE Broadcasting and HowStuffWorks.com. While they received $8 million from Apple for a patent dispute, can they really go after a podcast? The Lawsuit The company Personal Audio LLC filed an Intellectual Property patent against HowStuffWorks (2:2013cv00015), Togi Entertainment (2:2013cv00013) and Ace Broadcasting Company (2:2013cv00014) – the official company of the...
