Something I have noticed today is that it is inconsistent about pausing podcasts. If I am out of the car for a short time, it resumes from where I was when I exited the car. But once or twice when I returned to the car, it had returned to the start of the piece. Since it also will not fast forward through a podcast, you have to listen to it over again in real time to get where you were before, which is very tedious. After listening to the first few minutes of one episode of "Car Talk" at least 3 times, I gave up and went to another episode. I never listened to podcasts at all before version 8, so i do not know how it used to behave.
