    I haven't been listening to them for a few weeks. Looks like there's a reason now. :rolleyes:

    I would love it if you were on there more. One of the horrid things about MBW is that most of the time everyone is talking out of their butt!

    I have faith in you Arn that you know what is going on in the world of Apple. :)

    Apple Legal called you at 2 in the morning!?

    That means those lawyers were being paid overtime!

    Not much for dialogue, but what ACTION!!!! ROTFL!!! Definitely a candidate for IMAX!

    Hey! Wait a minute!!! Since that's the MacRumors logo, does that mean we all have "wormy" Apples?

    iTunes just downloaded this week's podcast for me. This is one of several that I try to catch each week. Separately, most of those guys drive me nuts, but together it seems to work better somehow. Going to listen on my commute today. :D

    arn you should be on there more often. I had given up on MacBreak Weekly for the past month but you brought my interest back to it.

    I enjoyed your expertise on the macbreak weekly podcast. However, your speech patterns got EXTREMELY annoying. Every 5 seconds you would say "..you know..". "Well obviously you know, ipod updates, you know, are going to be coming, well, soon". The fillers greatly distracted the actual content of what you said.

    Ya... nervous tick I suppose for knowing I was being recorded. I cringed when I heard it on playback and am a bit embarrased by it. It got better during and if I do a podcast again, I'll be far more conscious of it.

    I don't actually speak like that in day-to-day conversation. :)

    It's too bad that celebrity brings out the critics!

    Re: nervous, that's understandable...I was the one that Twittered about the "ya' know"s (rogersmj) while I was listening to the show, then felt bad when I thought about it later! Anyone might do that if they're not used to being on a show. I still yell at my car radio occasionally while listening to Alex Lindsey start but not finish 12 sentences in a row ("GET ON WITH IT!") when he's on MBW, LOL ;)

    Honestly, I enjoyed hearing from you on the show. One thing about MacBreak Weekly is that they tend not to have very many guests, so the show can get kind of stale. Having you on was great because it turned the conversation in a different direction and got everyone out of their box, at least a little bit. I enjoyed finding out that you quit a medical practice to do web work...that'll be a good one to tell to the occasional relative that screws up their face when I explain what my job is. :D Keep doing podcasts, you'll be a master in no time.

    This was my first time listening to MacBreak Weekly (my first mac-centric podcast, in fact) and I enjoyed it quite a bit. However, without you, Arn, I can imagine it would become quite static.

    I listened to the prior episode as well and it's quite clear that they need someone intimately familiar with the world of Apple on their panel. I wonder who that could be... ;)

    Arn, you did a great job integrating into Twit. I hope they invite you more often, it's refreshing especially after the lame Apple bash fest called Episode 98.

    Any intentions to get into podcasting with MR, Dr. Kim :)?

    I like that idea! A MacRumors podcast would be great because you know what you are talking about, you know who the credible sources are, you know exactly what the problems with certain things are...

    Now that you quite your day job...

    ;)
