    Nice work with the AGTV!
    I’m tuning in on episode from now on.

  2. Great show, I really enjoyed watching it. One little thing I just wanted to point out, was that as you where talking about the email question. The audio seemed to fall out of sync, I don’t know if that is just me or not. But I thought I would let you know. Again, great show.

    I loved it! This is great that you can do some more in depth hardware reviews! I can’t wait for more episodes.

  4. Loved AGTV! It’s very well made and I enjoyed it a lot. Great work Michael!

  5. Great work.
    Indeed the sound was out of sync at the end.
    Also the sound was much lower in volume compared with other show on itunes.

  6. @Bruno B

    Yeah, episode two will have much more even audio.

    :)

  7. Loved it! Kepp going!

    Well. Michael. First congratulations for the show and the quality of your material. I liked it.

    Second I have some questions and notes and here they are in a numbered list below:

    1. I didn’t watch the HD version. I just watched the version from right withing AG and I have to say that I wasn’t a fan of the sound quality. not just the sync but the quality itself of the compression.

    2. Why can’t I subscribe via iTunes? I searched for AGTV and found other irrelevant shows.

    3. I think that a camera mounted above your head to show what you are doing with your hands would be a nice addition.

    4. It’s kind of short unless you gonna be producing it more frequently. So if you gonna give us a show every week then you need to make it at least 20 minutes long or so so tahat you can fit more stories and reviews.

    Other than that the show is more than fine and the quality of content is good. I watched the modbook for the first time in action and I am typing this on my mac while the snackr bar is scrolling at the bottom of the screen. :-)

    Thanks Michael and keep up the good work.

  9. Nice, delivery. The only problem I found was the actual player. Accidentally I interrupted the video going to a different web page in about half way of the program. I was not able to fast forward to start when I left off then I didn’t want to wait or listen the same information so I did not finish listening. Any suggestions to overcome this issue?

    1. The audio issues have been noted, and I’ll have better sound in the next episode.

    2. Apple hasn’t approved the show yet in iTunes. Hopefully they will soon.

    3. I would love an additional camera as well – but we’re going to have to wait a bit on that – those things aren’t cheap. :)

    4. As far as the length is concerned, I’m going to experiment with that to find a comfortable balance between being too long and not long enough. I also have to factor in that I have zero assistance creating the show. I shoot it, host it, write it, edit it, and all of that – so time is a factor as well.

    Still, there will be experimentation until we hit a format that most everyone is happy with with.

    Thanks for watching!

    I am not in love with the Blip.tv player either. In fact, I haven’t really found a player yet that I enjoyed in an embedded format. There are several of them at are great on site, but once you embed them you start running into problems.

    If you have any suggestions on a better player, I’m certainly open to the idea.

  12. Great stuff!

    Not too long, interesting topics, I will watch it frequently… :)

  13. The Wizard says:

    What about Viddler? Leo Laporte uses it after all :-)

    And thanks Michael for your detailed reply above.

  14. The Wizard says:

    May I add please that I LOVE the new Apple Gazette Website design. Using it is a real Pleasure :-)
