Naming Overcast

Marco Arment expands a little on naming his new app:

I couldn’t get the .com — its squatter wants $100,000,000 for it. That’s right, a hundred million dollars. I tried to get him to come down a bit, and he said he’d take $95 million. I offered him $1,000, which quickly ended negotiations.

I love the name. Even though I don’t regularly listen to podcasts, I’m tempted to buy this when it’s released just to have its name (and icon) on my home screen.
