    John, I’m really glad you filled in for Cali. Geekbeat wouldn’t be the same without either of you. BUT – and you knew that was coming, right? – But you were really not as good as Cali at reading the teleprompter, expression, smoothness, and stuff in this episode. Next time Cali goes on vacation I’d be glad to come fill in. :)

    When is Cali getting back? It would be nice to get a more balanced view of the tech world. John P’s anti Apple tirade is getting tiresome.

      Actually, Cali and I both feel exactly the same about Apple products. And we literally have about 20 Apple computers in our studio.

      The only thing I’m “anti” is really iOS. The iPad and iPhone are absolutely not my cup of tea. So I play bad cop when it comes to those devices. 😉
