Brian Tong has a lot energy, but my question is will he be able to bring us new or different information in a timely manner. Engadget, boy genius, mac rumors, etc. many times have the inside track, so I hope he has some good sources to keep up. My biggest concern is with so many sites, pod, and video casts focusing on technology and apple products will this get lost in the mix. Length of show also might be an issue as it is very difficult to showcase products in less than 5 minutes... again... first show, so time will tell. The quality is awesome as it is offered in both standard and HD... nice touch. The first episode is a re-hash of old news, so we'll have to give it more time. Overall... worth giving a month or two to see how it develops.
I was surprised that CNET, which usually has high quality media, actually put their name on this. To call this amateurish would be a compliment, slow plodding, with no new information, it looks like a program put together by Windows fans who have to show the "other side." Skip this one.
I love this podcast! Keep bringing them!!!
