JamieDNZ ,

Not as good as it used to be

Video quality has become appalling with freezes and stutters as it plays and the content is nowhere near as good as it used to be. More of a 'Leo Laporte show' than anything else now as he often talks over the other presenters rendering their comments inaudible.

Melvis0 ,

Great stuff.

I came across this thing in the iTunes Store and found it to be quite interesting. Informative and entertaining, but a bit long. A bit like watching a Peter Jackson movie - an hour too long.
