Still Waiting for an Answer

A week or so ago here, I asked a question about the distinction -- if any -- between 'podcasting' and audio/video 'streaming' which is a technique which has been on the net for a long time.

No one has yet replied! Is 'podcasting' just a new name for an old technique? Is it thus named because the (rather specialized) computers which are used for receiving 'podcasts' do not typically do any other functions like 'normal' computers? Is it because 'podcasters' often times do not have any 'regular, over-the-air' type broadcasts to accompany their computerized streaming presentations?

Can anyone answer these questions, or is 'podcasting' just much ado about nothing new?
