Recorded a new MacBreak Weekly with Leo Laporte and Merlin Mann. I actually wondered if the show would be any good: Leo managed to infect half of the usual panel with his flu so it was just the three of us. “This is like that episode of “M*A*S*H” when everybody’s sick and Hawkeye and Hot Lips have to run the whole camp by themselves,” I said, just before the mics went hot.
So we were understaffed. Plus, a week of podcasting at Macworld Expo had left all of us pretty damned talked-out. But it actually came out pretty great, with discussions of the new Office, and the rather subtle business dynamics of MacHeist’s otherwise fantastic bargain package of Mac software…it was a hum-dingah.
