Someone get him an iPod before he hurts himself.

In fairness, none of his criticisms are any we haven't already heard here or elsewhere and he did have the thing for at least a month. At the beginning, he liked it but the more he used it, the more he started bumping up against its limitations and the less he liked it.

Either way, I think he was a bit over the top in the shouting stuff, but that's his personality sometimes...

Disclosure: I work for one of the shows on Leo's TWiT network of podcasts.

Haha! Twit! (look at the British definition per Google (http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=define:twit&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8)) Hilarious choice for an network abbreviation... IMO. :D

Man, Leo should have a permanent warning label la Zune: "Warning: LOUD LEO LAPORTE can damage your hearing." Or, at least before his ranting starts... *me thinks that's tinnitus ringing in my ears*

Gee... I'm sure he never heard that definition before and he wasn't really doing this sort of tongue-in-cheek. :rolleyes:
