Fun show

Nice addition to the 5by5 network.

Too much music talk.

I don't care about how Slash plays his guitar. Since Shawn took over there had been too much music talk. Jim has a unique voice concerning all things tech. It's a shame all that is talked about is AC/DC and Slash.

Two co-hosts discussing two subjects, both of which they are each passionate about

There has only been one official episode of this show so far, but there were two precursor shows where Jim fills in for John Gruber on the Talk Show. Based on these three episodes I'd say this is the start of something great.

Jim and Dan both know a ton about tech. The can both be depended upon for intelligent and balanced conversation about Apple and related technologies. But the bonus is their second main topic: guitar playing. I get the sense that Dan and Jim both share a passion for playing guitar that is rooted in love of the craft itself. So far the guitar discussion has been completely free of ego and pretense. I'm guessing that by oscillating between the tech and guitar topics this show will stay fresh for a very, very long time.
