    Hi Adam, I’m listening to the 11/22/09 episode and wanted to let you know about a great deal on VMWare. It was mentioned by a contributor on the MacReview Cast this past weekend. On Amazon I purchased the old version2 for $28.99 and I will get a $10 mail in rebate, plus until November 30th, you can get a free upgrade to the new version ( which is $69.99). Allison Sheridan gave it such a glowing review, I bought it right away.

    Thanks for everything you do, I’ve learned so much from your podcast.

    It really sucks that Apple is busting on so many iPhone app developers like Facebook and Rogue Ameba. They should start to preapprove many of the developers if there app was already approved.
    Kind of like commenting on a blog. Why do I need to moderate commentors who have already been approved?
