Short info

Why didn't they think of this sooner - the Xpower Power Source Mobile 100 - an extra battery with an AC plug and USB port so it charges anything!

Detailed information

Dick has called up Premiere to ban Leo from doing any of the following on his radio show: singing, Scottish accents, sound effects, letters jingle.  That should be a short radio show then.

Domain Names and Extensions

Dick and Leo discuss various domain extensions, such as .am, .fm, .biz, .info, and even .name.  Leo has registered domain names for his children.  Dick, who owns a multitude of domain names (including his holiday wishes domain name - Episode 218), has also registered dickdebartolo.com and dickde.tv.

Listening to DGW a la Steve Jobs

Carl and Joni Garrard snuggle up in bed listening to DGW sharing the earbuds, a la Steve Jobs.  Leo explains to Dick the fons et origo of Steve Jobs's suggestion, his answer to Steve Ballmer's sales pitch for the Zune (Episode 202).
To Joni, hi-tech means a pair of knitting needles.  Dick suggests the LED knitting needles (Knit Lite, Episode 166) for her, and Leo suggests titanium ones.

The Giz Wiz Pay Cheque

Over the weekend, Dick finally received his pay cheque for all those commercials he did on DGW.  See Dick's blog on MySpace.  So there's still something left of the money after Leo's trip to Mexico after all.
