Open Questions

Web Feed content inspection

  • Do we want to have custom icons for image feeds and video feeds?
  • Are there any other types of content we should be looking for in feeds that we can hand off to particular applications? Microformats?
  • Should we follow Apple's lead and use the terminology: Podcast, Video Podcast, Photocast?
  • cbarrett isn't sure if you can subscribe to any RSS feed of images as a Photocast he's checking into it though.

Launching Applications

  • Should we say "this Web site would like to send information to an application" or "this Web site would like to launch an application?"
