 Listener Feedback


  • @WPT_Bill tweets: Great show this week. Jailbreaks, like Lays… you can’t eat just one and the “unstable city”.“Preshit on my pick”… hilarious!
  • @dmtammaro tweets: much better audio this week from joe. Must be hard communicating from Canada.
  • @jmhanna75 tweets: No issues with audio. Y’all sounded good to me. The show is getting more and more pro every time I listen. 


  • Samuel Strickland: Based off what we saw at Google I/O, do you believe that Google’s vision of the future for Android is similar to that of Apple’s for iOS? And if so, how will Apple stay ahead of Google in that regard?


  • Thanks goes out to jmhanna75 and dmtammaro for the 5-star reviews it iTunes

Does Apple need to be more flat or functional in iOS 7.0? Or leave it to apps?

  • @HobieHenning tweets: a balance of both, like the latest podcast app.
  • @jjb70 tweets: Function is ALWAYS number one for me. ;)
