Great Stuff

This is my first time to ever write a review, so someone should feel special. I love TMO Weekly Roundup(and the Geek Gab for that matter, but let's stay focused) and here is why: I am a relatively new Mac convert (December of 2004) so my Mac knowledge could be summed up one way: limited. So I can take this podcast and really use it. That is not to say it would not be of benefit to you more educated Mac folk, because he does cover everything. I just like the fact that I can get filled in on what is happening in one swoop. To a newbie to the Mac, it is a must have. To a veteran Mac user, if you miss it, us newbies will make you look dumb.

What a drag!

These two guys might be good writers at The Mac Observer, but they sure aren’t good radio hosts. They speak haltingly, make cutesy and inane remarks, laugh at their own mistakes, and don’t show a comprehension of Apple matters and technology in their reporting. They should take lessons from their co-workers Dave Hamilton and John F. Braun on Mac Geek Gab. Now that is a show that is worth one’s time and from which you can learn more about Apple.

Too political

I turn to Jeff Gamet and MacObserver for tech news, but lately his anti-Trump articles have been a huge turn off. One star.

MacObserver should go back to talking about tech and stop being intolerant of other people’s views.
