Build a business case: developing custom apps

RTFMWelcome to RTFM: a new audio service from sci-tech world superpower The Register. We at Vulture Central have been talking for some time about doing a pilot for a possible monthly broadcast, and we finally got out of the pub long enough to put together a 14-minute sonic burst for your listening pleasure.

The RTFM cast of thousands includes myself and John Oates, who provided vital news resources. Further plaudits should go to Phil "Philipe" Mitchell, who offered Strategy Boutique logistical back-up, while a round of applause is certainly in order for voice artists Hils Barker and Silas Hawkins, who toiled selflessly over a hot microphone down at Cut Glass studio in Norrrf London under the caring eye of soundmeister Phil Corran.

The mp3 is available for download right here (19 meg mp3), or you can have a listen on our RTFM mp3 player below. Your feedback on this initiative is welcome, as long as it includes the words "I love you and want to have your babies". Enjoy.

The whole wonderful thing

Technical update

Loads of you wrote to say you need RTFM available via an RSS feed which will allow you to automatically download it to, for example, your iPod. Well, here are the urls: www.theregister.co.uk/odds/rtfm/headlines.rss and www.theregister.com/odds/rtfm/headlines.rss.

We gave this a go in Bloglines, and the audio file appears as an enclosure with this story. You should, therefore, be able to download it automatically to your iPod or similar. Let us know if you have any problems.

Some of you also noted that having the sketches as separate files would be nice, so you can cherry-pick your fave bits. We agree, and here they are for instant listening or download:

If this thing takes off - and that's very much up to you lot - we're looking at expanding the range and scope of broadcasts available, and bringing in some third-party talent to further entertain you, our beloved readers. Watch this space.®
