Will someone please listen to this and let us all know how amazing and magical it is.

I just can't bring myself to listen to Gruber anymore on podcasts.

hi:
A couple hours of useless blather. Worse than most. He said that there are definitely iMessage for Android mockups (but that doesn't mean it will happen), discussed Cue underdressing for a meeting with cable execs, etc.

It is hard to understand why they bothered to do this.

Obviously it doesn't sound very good because your headphones use 3.5mm connectors instead of Lightning. Have you thought about upgrading?

@hi: Because the sponsors pay him when the podcast hits its numbers. Or he doesn't get paid. and he gets paid a lot. Do the guests get paid? That's the only interesting question.

His show and ATP are my main two podcasts. It's pretty good when it's good, but I wish it was edited a bit more. And it's very frustrating when he is clearly not paying attention to the guests-which is pretty often.

@dogfood: ugh, can't stand ATP. I tried for a while, but ended up just FFing thru everything Marco (whiny, entitled, and clueless) and Casey (plain thick) had to say. Not worth it. On Gruber's rubfest, there are occasional interesting bits. The trick is judicious use of the skip button (actually you don't have to be that judicious).
