Smart an very informative!

There is not much time to listening to a lot of different podcasts these days. I needed to choose one I could listen to while commuting to work. I did my research and I can highly recommend The Mac Observer's Geek Gab! It’s funny and kept to the point. Especially good for me as I switched to the Mac platform about a year ago. Experienced hosts cover current Mac news and answers many listeners technical problems.
I listen to the podcast for a while now and was thinking that the good way to say thank you to the creators of the podcast would be posting an iTunes comment.

Thanks guys. Keep up the great work.

And one more thing. Do not get caught!

Definitely one for the Mac fans!

An excellent PodCast covering all things Mac. Dave and John do an absolutely great job of informing listeners about new Mac technology along with answering listeners questions on Mac related topics. Is just a great place to go to get your weekly dose of what’s happening in the Mac world. The audio quality and manner in which the show is put together is always very good. I would recommend this to any Mac fan.
