  1. How about refocusing the podcast back to being about books and other written stories; reading and writing, and drastically cut down on the technology guff.

    I've been through LP, cassette, CD, music download format wars, the beta-max, V2000, VHS, Super VHS, DVD, HD-DVD, BLU-RAY - the video wars. It's the music and films that matter.

    The format wars are a consumer frustration. Don't fuel that fire.

    The odd discussion is interesting and informative. Now it's getting boring.
