Morpheus, the popular peer-to-peer file-sharing software, is celebrating its fifth year in existence -- and a bumpy five years it's been -- with a new version allowing users to share podcasts.
The rapid growth of "social networking" Web sites, such as http://www.myspace.com/ , continues to soar.
During all this, StreamCast pushes onward, embracing podcasting -- recordings of everything from college lectures to garage-band music for use on MP3 players, chiefly, the Apple iPod. Podcasts let users download, say, Rush Limbaugh's daily radio show and play it whenever they want.
The new Morpheus 5.2 lets users upload their audio and video podcasts, search for others on the Web and download them.
