  • G’day guys. And yes I am Australian (From Melbourne to be exact). Have listened to all your podcasts & enjoyed them. It’s a shame with the Maverick release you didn’t talk / comment about the new netbook UNE release (Unity interface). Looking forward to the side podcast with Android phone’s as I’m considering purchasing one (HTC Desire Z). Keep up the good work. Cheers Glenn
