Fantastic show. John and the team have an in-depth understanding of the technical aspects of new and old Macintoshes. The format is a group of guys just talking about Apple technology and I feel like I am right there just listening in and absorbing it all. Not only are they a joy to listen to, but they provide meaningful information to the listener that he or she can immediately use. But be prepared, there is homework after each podcast!
MacBreak Tech is a great show. If you want to sit down and learn some really useful information about Macs, you'll love this show. I can't recommend it any more highly.
Def!n!tely One of my favor!te podcasts!
In a sea of podcasts where tomfoolery, hijinks and self promotion is the norm, John, Kenji and Ben deliver the goods. These three fellows know what they are talking about and have provided me with hours of informatative listening. I'm glad to see that they have begun producing new episodes because I have tired of the incessant blathering about the iPhone that has absolutely made listening to most other Mac-related podcasts a chore. The recent discussion about the Finder was very good. Thanks, guys! I appreciate your work.
