Bryan Chaffin Discusses Safari Reader on MacJury Podcast

| TMO Appearances

The Mac Observer’s Bryan Chaffin joined MacJury host Chuck Joiner and several other guests for Part 2 of a special two-part podcast to talk about the Safari Reader.

The podcast panel also included Jeff Carlson from TidBITS, Pioneer Press columnist Julio Ojeda-Zapata, TUAW’s Michael T. Rose, and Frasier Speirs from Connected Flow.

In this part of the podcast, the panelists get into a spirited argument about advertising, Apple’s meddling (Mr. Chaffin’s perspective), and some fundamental aspects of who gets to control the browsing experience.

MacJury #1015 is available as a free download in MP3 format at the MacJury Web site.

Brian, i just listened to the Mac Jury Podcast on Safari Reader.  I have to say I see your point, and understand your point of view about Reader stealing revenue from you and your advertisers.  But…

1) I am visually impaired and Safari Reader finally provides me a quick and easy way to read articles that before were hard to read due to fonts sizes, colors and background colors.  I have just gotten used to highlighting the text so that I can get a reverse of the text to be able to read it.  This is OK, but many sites imbed ads right in the text and while highlighting things pop up, roll over. Reader is a such a plus for me, and it has nothing to do with me trying to get rid of the ads, it is just a tool for me to read.

2) I love the articles at Mac Observer, but this site is also full of Flash content which you blasted on the Mac Jury Podcast. 

3) The last line of this article has a pop up that has nothing to do with the article.  Th link says free download of the podcast, but it is in fact an add for Microsoft junk.  Very misleading.

4) I do not use Adblocker.  If the ads get to much for me than maybe I will pay for your content.
