    James says: "Fun to listen, and sometimes I learn stuff"
    "Still the best, funniest, & most informative."
    Overall

    It's been a year since Your Mac Life first came to Audible. It now has 70 positive (4&5 star) reviews vs 7 negative (1&2 star) reviews. 147 people have rated the show for an average of 4.5 stars. Why? Because this show really is good.

    The two Co-hosts, Shawn and J, open the show and set the tone of the night with chat and banter. J is a digital video professional, and Shawn is the broadcast professional with more than a decade of experience producing the best Mac Broadcast around.

    The first segment is 'The News'. For those who want quick 'insightful' information, it's right here.

    Next, Peter Cohen, the resident Game expert, talks about the latest game news. Yes, Virginia, there are plenty of games for the Macintosh.

    Now it's time for knowledgeable guests who have great information to share. Usually two guests per show, but sometimes three. Listeners can email questions to the show or jump into the live chat during the show to ask them.

    'Sly Time' follows the guests. What is 'Sly Time'? Well, just think of Sly as one of your kooky friends working on that committee at work or school that is supposed to send out birthday and 'Get Well' cards. Plus, she gives away a cool gadget every week to the person that sent in the best 'Website of the Week'.

    The show winds down with talk about emails that were received, a call-in segment, and announcing or selecting the prize winners for the countless contests and giveaways.

    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    Suzanne says: "Anne Fan...Still"
    "Narrator teeters on my nerves"
    Overall

    The narration stretches for extra prominence by including coughing, gasping, sighing, mouth noises, and some whining voices.
    The realistic/dramatic style teeters on getting on my nerves.
    I won't be replaying this book even though it is an old favorite of mine.

    "Apple to switch to Intel CPUs - Don't Panic"
    Overall


    This is why Your Mac Life is THE source for Technology News and Macintosh news.

    Your Mac Life has a huge audience.

    The show doesn't need to scare you to get your attention... and boost listenership.

    There are a lot of opinions out there - Shawn, Jay, Peter, Sly, John, Aaron and Lesa bring you the most intelligent assessments of all of them.

    Apple is switching to processor chips from Intel. Right now (and for the next year) Apple uses IBM processors...

    If you didn't know or don't understand what that means - don't worry about it.

    If you are worried - listen to Your Mac Life - They'll inform you without the scare tactics.
