I think the problem was content.  It was like listening to a 
tech-support guy 24 hours a day.  I like computer news, I used to love 
the old CNet TV show that started the whole operation.  But CNet Radio 
seemed completely absorbed in geek talk and separated from the world 
around it.  I listened for a week or two.  There was no news or content 
that had to do with anything but computers.  It made me feel 
disconnected from reality and sometimes bored.
