I love the review on new technology, the unbiased perspective, and Brian Cooley's touch on it. I enjoy this podcast a lot, only issue is don't have a podcast with one already having the four mini ones in it. Either have four mini 3 min podcasts or just one 12 min, stick to one though. It's annoying when you subscribe because your taking space on ones hard drive for no reason, and it's just professionalism.
Brian Cooley is the best
