A Review of "The Tech Guy"

Even though I had found certain parts of what I had believed to had been certain installments of this "The Tech Guy" to had been amusing and informative, I had found what I had believed to had been certain other parts of what I had believed to had been at least one of those installments and certain parts of what I had believed to had been certain breaks between certain broadcasts (or streams) of at least one of those installments to had been vulgar, negative, unnecessary, unprofessional, and detrimental.

Politics influence tech

All the reviews criticizing Leo for bringing up politics carefully and giving him a low star rating should be ashamed of your ignorance. He does an effective job explaining why things are moving in a direction with the current trend. The technology field is extremely political, unforgiving and needs to be addressed in some way. The tech guy is great and you could never be as positive and nurturing after see your comments. Start your own show so you can se how hard and challenging is it to help and not criticize. You are a disgrace with your hate. Leo is a pleasure which is clear by having success doing it so long.
