Short info

It's turn the tables Tuesday, and Leo reviews the Motorokr S9 bluetooth headphones (and headset).

Detailed information

Leo was sent the MOTOROKR S9 along with the MOTORIZR Z8 from across the pond (Episode 380).  The MOTORIZR is not available in the US, but the S9 is.  It's a pair of bluetooth stereo headphones, particularly good for listening to music.  Works with any phone or bluetooth device supporting A2DP.  The battery "bulge" is behind your neck, so you don't need to look like a borg, as Leo puts it.  Comes with red or black lining.

Music playback, volume control and call-answering can be done via touch-sensitive controls next to the earpieces.

Wait-For-Dick Jingle ...

... or perhaps a Wait-For-Leo-To-Play-The-Jingle Jingle would have been more appropriate.  Dick has to answer the door for a UPS/Fedex delivery.  This is the moment we've been waiting for since Episode 346, when Paul Minshall made the Wait-For-Dick Jingle, only to have Leo spoil it for us.  Dane Golden has obviously declined to edit out the long wait, to let us have a fly-on-the-wall experience.  At least Leo redeems himself by giving us a a good farce.

Dyson Airblade

Dave Gross from Blackpool, England writes in about a hand dryer that blows out air at a phenomenal speed which Dick mentioned in passing in an earlier episode.  On a recent trip to the Eden Project in Cornwall, Dave saw one of those in the men's room.  It's the Dyson Airblade.  For a picture of and a link to the Airblade, see Episode 394.

A Men's Room Story

Dick has a story to tell about an NBC man with an umbrella.
