More TWIT drivel

This show claims to be a review show.
Buy or Don't Buy. But about half the reviews are TRY.
Are you kidding me? That is why I am listening, so you can try it and give me a recommendation. OY!
I am slowing moving away from all TWIT podcast, after years of downloading TWIT, TWIG and MacBreak Weekly, I am now down to just one. Tech News Today. And the main reason is Leo Laporte. His ads are well over two minutes long and come way too frequent.
This show can not overcome that, there are too many alternatives to keep downloading this garbage. I am now a 5by5 fan and until TWIT trims the fat of their shows and the fat of their numerous ads, I am not going back.

Another great TWiT Production

Another great TWiT Podcast with Leo & Gang. Aside from Nerdist and Mohr Stories, TWiT fills up my iPhone's podcast list.
