Mac OS Ken: Day 6 – Is It Worth $10 per Month?

Mac OS Ken Day 6So, I’ve given Mac OS Ken Day 6 more than the one month I said I would before deciding whether to continue with my subscription.

My conclusion: Day 6 is not worth $10 per month and I’ve canceled my subscription.

Yes, if you like Ken Ray and want to support his endeavor and, more importantly, can afford to give him $120 a year, then that’s fine. However, Day 6 appears to be the same format show as one of his previous podcasts, Technocracy Radio. That show used to be free.

On the first six shows, while there were interesting interviews with tech people, I didn’t feel each show was worth $2.50. For instance, one show was Ken interviewing his friend (and Mac developer) August Trometer. While August did a great job of predicting what Apple would release at Macworld, I didn’t feel it should cost me $2.50, especially as there were so many other podcasters doing predictions for free on their shows.

Ken can try and argue that you are actually paying for six shows each week, but as everyone else gets Monday to Friday shows free, the only extra material you get for your money is one 30-40 minute show each week.

Also, a complaint: while I’ve just canceled my subscription and have already paid my $10 for the second month’s content, my subscription has been canceled immediately, so I cannot get episodes 7 and 8, which I have paid for!

So, has anyone else subscribed (or canceled their subscription) to Day 6?
