Oh wow. Why am I not surprised?
Once again, Leo goes off on Apple for not letting him use his NFC the way he wants it! Give me a break, big crying baby. We still don't know what Apple will do with it.
When Touch ID came out, Leo pretty much said the same thing - I can only use it for purchasing apps... Wah wah wah... What's the point? Seriously, he's just a big brat who wants it his way.
Gosh, I wonder why he's isn't invited to any Apple parties... Hmmm...
On the last episode, Serenity was explaining why iBeacons aren't sexy. They aren't meant to be active with tapping. Yet, Leo cuts her off and tells her Apple wants you to tap with Touch ID! Uh, hello? That's exactly the point Serenity was explaining - Touch ID is for tapping while iBeacon is not. Ugh!
Furthermore, what's the point of having guests on the show if they aren't allowed to talk. All I see and hear are Leo & Andy cutting off their guests while hogging up "air time?"
Please, let's just change this show's title to Leo & Andy Weekly - LAW. There you go Leo, I gave you a freebie.
Too much Apple bashing
I used to love this podcast. All of the other guests are great, but I get so bored listening to non-succinct Andy and his negativity about Apple. Especially when he drones on negatively about their prices. I don't care if he thinks they are overpriced (obviously, Apple is doing fine!), and I certainly don't need to hear him rambling about it. If he is a newspaper man, surely he knows about brevity, but you couldn't prove it by the way he blathers on.
Not What It Used To Be
After 10 years of listening to MacBreak Weekly, I’ve decided to move on. Today’s episode, “Salty, Salty Funk” (06/21/2016), is the perfect example why. It was the first episode in a really LONG TIME that I actually enjoyed listening to! I forgot how good it could be. Was it because WWDC just happened and they now have a lot of Apple news to talk about? No because last week’s episode was the first after WWDC and I didn’t enjoy it. So what could it be then? Hmm? Oh yeah. Leo Laporte wasn’t hosting today’s episode. In the past, I used to hate when he wasn’t on the show. After today, I’ve realized that he’s the reason I don’t like the show anymore. It was like night and day! He’s gotten to be so negative about Apple and inappropriately off-topic that I just can’t stand listening to his voice anymore. So much so that I couldn’t even stand to listen to his pre-taped ads during the show. I had to fast forward through them. He really needs to realize that he is bringing down a lot of his shows with his negativity and his inappropriate antics. He needs to remove himself from this show, find a new host that actually likes Apple and isn’t faking it, stay on topic, cut the show down to an hour when it’s a slow Apple news day and have actual Apple-related picks of the week. As long as Leo Laporte continues to host this show, I won’t be listening/watching. If you want to listen to some good Apple-centric podcasts, may I suggest Rene Ritchie’s own “iMore Show” and “Apple Talk.” Another good one is Cult of Mac’s “The CultCast.” They cover a lot of the same news MBW does except the hosts don’t go out of their way to trash talk Apple and they know how to stay on-topic.
