    I've been listening to Leo's Tech Guy podcast for a few months now. A few times in the past few weeks he has referred to a "competitor", and in negative terms. Every tech pundit I can think of would probably be a friend of his, and I don't know what this person is competing with him at so I'm out of names. Does anyone know who he's talking about?

    I believe he is talking about Kim Komando. She hosts a weekly tech talk radio show. I know he has mentioned her on one of his podcasts. You can check out her website here. I believe there is also another tech type radio show that focuses on the basic "I have ____ problem with my computer, can you help me?" type questions, but I can't remember the name of it. Leo has said he doesn't like doing that kind of show.

    I can't tolerate leo, i find that every time he has someone on his show or what ever he cuts them off before they even get to answer his question.

    Anyone else find that or is it just me

    I like listening to his shows but he is a bit... not sure, but kinda weird.

    The best shows are the ones with John Dvorak (I think thats him) who often puts leo in his place. I can never really tell if there joking around or if they're really having a go at each other. I remember one show were John had a go at Leo and he (Leo) seemed to get upset and next week John was not on the show. So i can never tell.

    Wow--he is still around. I remember him from his days on Tech TV--I think that was the name of it--back in the late 90s. Was a pretty cool show for the time--not sure I care to listen to him now though--lol
