The smartest podcast regarding Apple I've ever listened to.
I listen to a lot of podcasts, mostly pertaining to Apple since its something I'm very interested in. Most podcasts try too hard, aren't always up to date or informed on the latest news & it's just annoying. These guys at The Prompt are top notch & people whom I've followed online for a while now. I'm especially happy to hear Vitticci & learn from him.
My new favorite podcast! 5 stars!
A long time listener to Myke and Steve. This new show with the added host of Federico (sp) made a great show even better! Thoughtful,introspective and fun.
These jokers know (and care about) what they're talking about...
If you want top notch insight from the some of internet's most talented tech journalists, look no further than this podcast. Mr. Hackett and Mr. Hurley join forces yet again to discuss Apple, design, and journalism. If you are a fan of 512pixels.net or even the Ungeniused podcast, then you are going to want to spend the time listening to this podcast each week.
Keep up the good work, guys. Already looking forward to next week's ep.
