I was wrong about Apple. When they replaced the iPod app with “Music” (in iOS 5) I thought they were finished promoting podcasts and had decided to focus on promoting the stuff that they sell — music and videos. Fortunately, that turned out to be false. “Music” was just the first (welcome) step in breaking up the iTunes monopoly into smaller more manageable components. Music and movies turned out to be only the first two such components. We also have iTunesU, iBooks, and now Podcasts, Apple’s dedicated podcatcher and podcast player.
