    Great news Adam! Thanks for the videos; I am downloading the full one now. I would just like to say that as awful as nearly all British accents are; his voice is the worst! We don’t all sounds like that ;)

    @seth, yes, though they’ve been featuring the Mac favourably too – apart from the podcast being Mac related, in the following episode a week later they did a PC vs Mac, similar to the PC vs Mac they did about a year ago. Last year they concluded the PC was better value for money, and that the Mac was slower and was expensive to repair – Anyone watching that would of gone with a PC without a second thought. This time around they had a Mac user (one of the guest presenters) who really talked well of the Mac platform. Interestingly the guy on the PC side of the debate was the same guy that recommended the MacCast podcast on the previous show! This time around, anyone watching that would of gone for a Mac without a second thought.

    and immediately following that they had several stylish computers; an iMac, a vaio, and a few others, all judged by someone who sells art. He chose the iMac. “Just sheer perfection. Pure, simple, beautiful.”. So anyone watching this episode of the Gadget Show wouldn’t of only decided to go for a Mac; they’d of been drooling all over the telly.

    It’s funny, #1 poster, because British people find american accents too :P Infact, I can not listen to podcasts like engadget because it’s so annoying.

    Anyways yes, well done for been metioned, found out about this place from that show.
