Rene Ritchie is one of the most respected Apple analysts in the business, reaching a combined audience of over 40 million readers a month. His YouTube channel, Vector, has over 90 thousand subscribers and 14 million views and his podcasts, including Debug, have been downloaded over 20 million times. He also regularly co-hosts MacBreak Weekly for the TWiT network and co-hosted CES Live! and Talk Mobile. Based in Montreal, Rene is a former director of product marketing, web developer, and graphic designer. He's authored several books and appeared on numerous television and radio segments to discuss Apple and the technology industry. When not working, he likes to cook, grapple, and spend time with his friends and family.
Sorry guys, but this came across as a pretty weak effort. Only Rene seemed like he wanted to be there, and the auto quality was terrible. Leo Laporte shows how this type of tech podcasting should be done, with high quality audio, a running order of discussion points, and a producer to keep everything together. Networks on lower budgets, such as Relay FM and 5x5 also manage to keep the pace up, keep the audio quality high, and find guests who are engaged. Sorry to moan, and I'm sure you're all delightful in person, but I listen to a lot of podcasts and this one just wasn't up to much.
Have you listened to MacOSKen? He's pretty good at all the points you made and his casts are short and to the point. I'll have to check out those other ones you mentioned. Sent from the iMore App
It's not the best podcast, but my real issue now is the audio quality the last few weeks. It's been atrocious. At least I could hear Serenity the whole time this episode.
That's Google hangouts for you. Lol! Sent from the iMore App
Nope. Nope nope nope. Not interested in "freemium". I'd rather just pay $25 for something than have to pay five bucks here, ten there. All this crap is getting old. Just charge me some damn money. I'll save up for a couple of weeks and buy it. Frak this paying for little piddly things that do jack. It's especially stupid on the Macintosh, but people are doing it. "Hey, pay us $1.99 for this thing that before app stores would have been free!" and "Five bucks for this little thing that shows you how much free space is on your hard disk!" Seriously? Seriously!? Ugh. Anyway, what's that lego ship behind you, Rene? Looks like a super-modified Millennium Falcon. Pretty awesome.
Is it now safe to turn on Automatic Updates in the iOS App Store, as I turned it off to preserve the PCalc Notification Widget. As Rene said that the PCalc Widget has been allowed to stay, but I've not seen anything on here that says it's allowed to stay, other than Rene saying it in the Podcast?
