During listening to episode 17 "Chrome OS" I was quite amazed to hear Matt Cutts from Google compare the unreleased and unproven Chrome OS to Microsoft Vista, I waited for Leo to pick him up for the apples to oranges comparison but no Leo actually chimed in with a few anecdotes of his own. Taken as a whole this podcast is entertaining but it can lapse into tired and quite frankly dull "my OS is better than yours exchanges" when it's meant to be cloud computing biased.
Tehnology ad nauseum
Honestly, listening to this goes down as one of the dullest experiences I've encountered for many years. Very intelligent people engaged in circular conversation that is so theoretical and industry focussed that it loses a credible connection with the real world.
If your recurring nightmare is something like being stranded in a dinner party full of people talking about Twitter and Oprah's book club, you won't enjoy this at all. However, if you like talking ad infinitum about "social media", this is something you'll enjoy.
