Customer Reviews

Djboody ,

Big fan!

Really look forward to the show every week. Andy, Rene, Alex and Leo make it fun to be a geek, thanks for the witty banter and informative talk about Apple.

colefromwpg ,

Don't waste your time.

I used to love the show but Andy needs to go. He would do well to stop and think before he speaks. The incessant blabbering makes the show unlistenable.

Lori Gil also gets interrupted far to often, which is grating on the ears. Her perspective is really refreshing and it's annoyingly to hear someone talk over her.

A reboot of the show would be refreshing and welcome.

René F ,

Too much of a good thing (Andy)

Andy, stop bogarting the mic so much... please. Let the other guests speak more. You may learn something.
