Hey guys, I just bought a new MacBook Pro and was wanting to get some advice on what are some must have apps.  I only got the 13″ Core i5 model but couldn’t pass up the under $1000 price they had on it at Micro Center. You may want to pass on to your listeners that at least until March 17th they have the $1199 13″ Core i5 Macbook Pro for $999.99.  And Apple stores will price match since it is from an authorized reseller.  That is actually where I picked mine up at.  I like the Apple store experience and living in Missouri I didn’t want a dollar of my tax money going to Kansas, and that’s where Micro Center is.  Since the sale is on Micro Center’s website you may be able to get the price match at Best Buy or elsewhere.  Thanks for the great podcast, keep up the good work.

Pax East thoughts post–Comment from Kris:

Great read Geoff.
Being a gamer myself I’m really enjoying the gaming talk on The Simulcast. Long may it continue!
I checked out a few of these games myself last year at Eurogamer in London. This is the biggest event for checking out new games we get here in the UK.
I’m hoping to check it out again this year and perhaps do some coverage of it myself.
Anyways, keep up the good work!

Hi Simulcast guys,

Just listened to the last few shows today (I’ve been a bit behind because of family matters). I like the random video game talk between Geoff, Bill, and Dave a lot! As a gamer this definitely interests me. I may even check out the Gamemine service that Geoff has spoken highly about…we’ll see.

I have one question/thought. Have you thought about including a segment in your show each week called “what we’re playing”? Each host could talk about the games they’ve played for the week. Nothing to in-depth just a quick 5 minutes or so to appeal to a broader audience.

That’s all, hope to hear this read on the show. Keep up the good work guys!!
