Informative, creative, humorous, edgy...Brian Tong is definitely is a breath of fresh air. Not a stodgy run of the mill monotone gadget-geek. He makes tech stylish! Good move CNET...it worked! You have tapped into a whole new demographic of subscribers and would be passers-by!
They get it the mixture RIGHT!
This is a nice balance of zany fun with highly informative and succinct information on all things Apple. In comparison to the hot, but HIGHLY annoying Cari "OH MY GAWD" Lewis of Geekbeat.tv, this show is a tour-de-force. It's amazing that some shows forget the focus is on information with fun mixed in, not vice versa!
Brian Tong, thank you for getting it right. Information, THEN fun.
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.
