The Term “Netcast” is Awful

Leo Laporte is using the term “netcast” in his podcast. So much so that he is using it in the intro to his show!

In TWiT Episode 72 Leo even states that the term is:

“…getting some traction”

This is going to be a short post. Not from me mate, I host a podcast, Okay. The term “netcast” is bloody awful and I swear I will never use the term in reference to my podcast.

Drop it Leo, I hate it and I think there are others that agree.

Ugh… please no more traction

Am I on my own here?

UPDATE: I need not worry, I found this on Wikipedia:

“It should also be noted that Netcast is a trademark of Netcast AG, a research firm of Switzerland.”

So basically the term has no future what so ever. Leo is suggesting a term that is already trademarked and could end up getting sued himself!
