Episode 268

I really enjoy your Podcast, since you all are very knowledgeable. However, you criticized Apple using the term “Pro” too often. Then, you claimed that the iMac Pro could only be optioned up to 32 GB of RAM! You aren’t doing your homework, as a Panel of Pros, as it’s widely known that the iMac Pro can take up to 128GB of ECC RAM! C’mon, Guys! If you are going to Dog Apple for misusing their marketing, at least do your research, and don’t mislead us! Many Pros, and Researchers use iMac Pro’s, and most aren’t fully optioned!

Thoroughly Entertaining

I have been listening to these guys for quite a while now. I never miss a podcast. The subjecst covered are almost always interesting to me (Even if the main topic is of minor interest to me somewhere in the show i will be entertained by their banter.). The 3 hosts have great chemistry.I appreciate the time they give to this show - i have learned a great deal by listening.

Smart, Funny, and Helpful

My only complaint: these guys are so witty that when I'm listening to them, the idiotic grin on my face makes people move away from on the subway. Come to think of it ... that's another reason to like it!
