Don't think this show is about learning how to use Windows more effectively or the new products more efficiently. Paul is so far ahead of the normal adopter's curve. For example, he was giving Windows 8 tips this summer. I'm like most users, I'm now well into Win 7 and like it, but to the hosts on this show, that ia ancient history and those who use 7 are to be mocked, they are so far out of date.
The content often revolves around Paul complaining about syncing his video, pictures, music and games on all devices, and how to do that. Leo often moans about the same problems with his data. The hosts often spend time talking and speculating about the next Windows release, which is good information. In their little tech echo chamber they have no clue about what day to day users do with their content. Day to day users spend time on machines working, not playing games or listening to music. Mary Jo is more connected to everyday users than the two male hosts, but she is often trampled by Leo and Paul.
The bright spot on this show is when it is hosted by Iyaz Akhtar. Actually, any show hosted by Iyaz is excellent. He gets the news out, makes the content concise and interesting, while maintaining an entertaining dry sense of humor. Leo is clearly bored with doing all these shows now. It is evident when Paul or Mary Jo will be discussing a serious and interesting topic - Leo will suddently interject with some silly, unrelated comment about something he feels is sooooo funny, and the topic that was at hand is forgotten.
Leo has turned his role into that of a podcast jester-rarely serious, but annoying and distracting. I have been a regular listener since pre-Vista release days but I never listen to a whole show anymore. I can't take the silliness coming from the host.
It would be nice if the content included more information for real users of the OS most people are using. Give us Win 7 tips now-we're all using it now. Don't restrain it to a 3 minute tip of the week until the end of the show. The show runs too long now with all the "humor" and "comedy" by the main host.
