Loved the show! I could go for this show more then once a month. I understand the reasoning, but maybe every 2 weeks?? Get Guy and Nitin on the show with you and we will all be in tears laughing.
Keep it up!
More than once a month, please.
This is looking to be a podcast worth subscribing too as our hero, once on the inside at Apple, now deals with the day to day realities of tech like the rest of us. As a front line end user consultant, I have picked up a number of tips and no small number of laughs so far :)
