    Adam – The link to the “big listen” promo doesn’t seem to work. I also tried entering directly into my browser, still with no results. Maybe it’s me, maybe audible hasn’t set up the link yet, but I just thought I’d let you know. Otherwise, great show as always! Thanks so much for all you do.

    It’s 7:00 Tuesday morning on the east coast and I am having the same problem with the Audible link. Will it only become active on the 27th when the promotion starts?

    Ya know Adam I really like your show but when you whine about button placement on the iphone your really are being very petty and are just looking for something to complain about. I am left handed and have no problem with where the buttons are.
    Please don’t become like some of the other podcast where people just look for reasons to complain and also try to be funny when they are not.(Leo LaPorte comes to mind.)
    I think the reason that the tech podcast listening totals are not growing is because of this nonsense.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Love the podcast.

    Jeffery and Mike – As mentioned in the show, the Big Listen promotion runs from March 27th at 11:00 AM to March 28th at 11:00 AM. Audible asked me to promote this on my next show which was this one. I guess they had not put the site up yet. It is there now.

    Eddie – This was actually something pointed out by a listener and I didn’t intend it to sound “petty” more like a “huh” moment that shows Apple not being very, “Apple” This is usually the type of detail they don’t gloss over. The fact that the volume control is backwards in this orientation is a pretty big deal.

    Hey Adam,

    Keep up the good work! What was the link for the program that allows you to find out what channels your wifi router and other routers in your neighborhood are using?

    The link works well. Thanks for recommending Audible. Didn’t know there was such a site that offered such great stuffs.
