The highlight of my week

Wow! What an excellent podcast. Michael and his colleagues put together a great mac show every week covering news and views, and offer a very balanced and well thought out point of view.

FMEO manages to capture the essence of the week's news and events in the mac world, and I like the style of presentation which is very easy listening and informative at the same time.

Every week I look forward to the latest episode which I listen to at work when on the road. It's a real treat and the highlight of my mac week.

(Another great podcast I recently discovered is MacPowerUsers. Check it out too)

Balanced, thoughtful and community focused

For Mac Eyes Only is put together with obvious care and passion. The shows are always well structured, taking the approach of being a scripted, rather than spontaneous, review of the week’s Mac news. The result is a thoughtful and insightful podcast — contrasting with the style of many other ‘talk show’-style Mac podcasts. Despite that difference in style, there is no lack of interactivity and community around the show: Mike frequently answers listener emails on the show and elicits feedback from the community and there is also a forum website for listeners.

All in all, a balanced, reflective (perhaps even introspective) Mac news podcast, likely to be valuable and interesting to both those with long standing interests in the Apple world, and new users, alike.

For Mac Eye's Only. Enjoy

FMEO is well worth a subscription, yes it's got news but Michael gives his slant on what's happening and what perhaps he'd like to see, and I think you'll find his views matching your own. Give it a go, I think you'll end up staying subscribed, I Have.....

In fact I've not only stayed subscribed I'm now part of the podcast so I've given it 5 Stars but then I would wouldn't I ;-)
