4 Stars could easily become 5
Aight Big Bri, here we go....time to step up to the plate with your own Cnet cast. You're on deck right where you should be! Okay, so here's the dilly: Not enough news trickles down from Mount Cupertino to make a daily, let alone weekly, let alone video podcast. SOOOO, I think you should continue the video format as a supplement to a weekly Apple Byte (love the name) audio podcast. This way you can run the show, have guests on and deliberate over the topics of your choice. You have the personality and drive to run a show like that and I for one would be on board. Make it happ'n cap'n!! Love what you got so far.....now lets get this 4 star vid-cast to a full on, knock down, drag out 5 star video-audio podcast! Skadoosh Pawaaaang ShiKAAA!!!
Lovin' the new podcast! It's got a great vibe to it, more "today" than "MacHeads" with fun but non-distracting background music. The opening graphic with the power apple is perfect! I also like the writing, snappy and funny, as well as Brian Tong's delivery - authentic and knowledgeable with just enough 'tude. Not to be superficial or anything, but Brian's hair is completely awesome and his wardrobe is highly entertaining. An area for improvement would be for Brian to reduce his gestures, which can distract from content. This could be easily minimized with editing or seated delivery. Just a thought. Also, it remains to be seen whether content can remain pithy, perhaps with visiting experts. Looking forward to more greatness from Brian.
Just love the way this podcast address cool things happening on apple in the format of news+tricks+badapple+iphone app of the week. Please add the section song of the week...;)
