    My opinion is you should move the recent post, categories and tag cloud either under the adverts or on the opposite side of the page it looks cluttered next to the ads, I am not a big fan of the theme either it seems to plain. but that is just my opinion.

    Rename Recent Post to Recent Reviews

    ---------------------

    In your posts edit the description in All-In-One-SEO
    (it's at the bottom of your individual post edit screen)
    This is the part that most of the time will show up in the SERPS. At the moment it's cutoff and not very exciting.

    ---------------------

    Go to Settings -> All in one SEO
    Edit the Post Title Format.
    Make it look something like: %post_title% | YOUR SMASHING HEADLINE

    At the moment your posts will show up in the SERPS like:

    post title | Macs Do It Way Better!

    This headline looks like a fanpage or a rantblog against Windows....:D.

    If you want to show off as an info blog for Macs your headline must reflect this.

    Yes and of course the YOUR SMASHING HEADLINE should be lines like:

    Latest News On Macs
    Read The Latest Mac News Now
    Online Mac Source No.1!
    The Best Mac Deals

    Something like that.

    Just try it and see what it does.

    The blog looks very empty, maybe its just the theme but it looks bland. I suggest having a background image or something, but thats my opinion.

    I would find a different theme. That one is too dull

    I would wrap your article text around your adsense blocks. Then disable image ads for that block. I find txt ads perform better when wrapped in content.
