  1. Hi Guys,

    Great podcast, but I would take both of you to task for some of your use of terminology. Quite often you call something ‘popular’ when you should be saying ‘common’. ‘Popular’ means ‘well liked’. For example I could say MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros are ‘popular’ – they receive an approval rating of 94% in Which? magazine (the British equivalent of Consumer Reports). However, Dell laptops are ‘common’ – they sell in greater numbers, but have a far lower approval rating (55%), so they are common, but not popular.

    By the way, OS X is used by a large number of people – many millions, not ‘no one’.
