    Adam, you did call for product reviews. Thought it just as easy to post here, someone will see it. I just got the Marware Milan folio case for the iPhone 5s:

    I really like it. Stylish and distinctive. Plus, Marware has always been known for their quality. My iPhone 3G had no scratches, because I always used a Marware case. Then with the iPhone 4s, I used no case and put two scratches on the screen by accidentally putting keys in the same pocket – while on a business trip, going through airport security. So, I decided to look for an ideal case for the iPhone 5s.

    The Marware Milan is maybe a little bigger than I would like, but it looks really good. It is functional on a day-to-day basis. I dropped a couple of business cards into the clear pocket designed for id. The drivers license and a bank card easily slips into the top pocket. I found that adding cash makes the case bulge out a bit, so I only do that when I am running to the store, out for shopping or on a trip. Above all, I like that the iPhone and wallet is one unit – I’ve always used a money clip. Much easier to keep track of.

    Hi Adam,
    In the Mac Pro reporting, I think you meant megabytes instead of megabits when you were talking about the storage performance, around 18:44? Sorry if this has already come up. Thanks for the podcast!
