Short info

It's turn the tables Tuesday, and Leo reviews the SMC Skype Phone and FON Router.

Detailed information

An idea borrowed from Cat Schwartz, this SMC phone is a Skype phone which enables you to use Skype without a computer.  The software is pre-loaded, and once you log on to your account, all your contacts will be loaded.  It also comes with a FON wifi router which enables you to share in the FON network and any open wifi network.
Buy it on the Skype website and you should get a good discount.

Broken Promise

Young Oren has written in to ask where is the Woz interview promised by Leo in Episode 150.  Leo doesn't remember he promised it.  But he DID.  Dick and Leo talk about Woz's Nixie watch again.  Leo says they'll get Woz on, in another 150 episodes.  Poor Oren.
