    I’ve been listening to your show since the beginning so I come to you with love and respect.


    I think you’ve been listening to Leo too much re: the Iphone. You are totally assuming that everybody is burned out on IPhone coverage. This is the Mac Cast. If I listen to your show then I completely expect to hear IPhone news and stories and I want to hear it. Where the hell else am I going to hear in-depth coverage of the Iphone? This is one of the biggest tech gadget stories ever. Please stop apologizing for what you absolutely should be doing.

    Your right I probably shouldn’t be apologizing, but to be honest I am sick about talking about the iPhone. ;)

    I think the heart and soul of the Mac comes from “us” the users. We hack it and Apple incorporates our hacks. So “we” help give it life. The iPhone “is” OS X, it just has a new looking finder and screen size. Soon we will hack it and, like its big brother, give it “our” heart and soul. Apple can then make it better. So a Mac is Mac, even if it does look like a phone.

    Hi Adam

    Just a short note to thank you on the pod cast and all the hard work you do for us all, we love and appreciate ya man!!

    The iPhone thing has in opinion got blown way out of proportion, not the hype or the chat but the fact that podcasters worry about covering it. The iPhone is “Apple” and should be discussed as same as any other Apple/Related product.

    I totally agree with Tim on the “Leo affect” and whilst I love the twit network its your show that I look forward, why? because you speak to the community as part of the community. Over produced podcasts that pander to sponsors and the very few “right wing fan boys’ no longer deserves the Podcast name but should be “Radio”.

    Keep on being you Adam and covering the stories/news in you own fabulous way, never become “Just another Leo” :-)

    Rant Over

    Hi Adam,

    I so enjoy seeing the MacCast show up o my iPod. I do have a little criticism.

    It’s odd that you constantly tell us how tedious IPhone news is, and how you wish you didn’t have to talk about it. When you and Victor were lamenting the iPhone phenomenon right at the peak of the excitement, it was a real buzzkill.

    It’s all part of the fantastic innovation Apple is delivering, and it’s all related and fascinating. Maybe you could consider spending less time telling us what’s interesting and what isn’t, and use that time to just relate the info.

    A little more crit: when you were knocking Apple around for delaying the next version of the OS in favor of the iPhone effort, I kind of wondered whether you appreciate the magnitude of what they’re trying to accomplish. Fantastic new products and concepts are coming almost monthly. Could you really manage this better? Cut them some slack!

    Thanks Adam.

    Drive Genius is another good way of repartitioning on the fly without losing existing data.

    Hi, Adam…

    If I could make a small correction: Regarding flash memory, NAND doesn’t stand for anything. It’s a contraction of NOT and AND, as in the logical operations. So, it’s usually pronounced “nand” (rhymes with hand) since it doesn’t make much sense to spell it out (N-A-N-D). I have no idea why it’s capitalized when written.

    Love the ‘cast and I’m looking forward to the increased interactivity.

    – Neil

    Hey Chris,

    This song has to be one of my favourite new music finds from your show recently. They’re a great finish to a great podcast – Thanks again.

    Sorry, Adam. (I’m talking to my friend Chris in real life!) Sincerest apologies!
