Short info

It's Turn The Tables Tuesday, and Leo looks his best for it after shaving with the Braun Pulsonic Shaver.

Detailed information

The latest dry shaving kit from Braun, called the Pulsonic System, Models 9595, 9585 and 9565.  Its sonic motor generates high frequency pulses in the shaving head, causing vibrations on your skin to loosen up hair follicles and raise problem hairs for a more thorough shave.  The shaver foil (the perforated metal sheet) on the shaver head moves in an opposite direction to that of the blades, creating a scissors-like cross-cutting action for more efficient shaving.  The pivoted shaver head also flexes to follow the contour of your face, giving you a close shave.  Finally, the Clean & Renew system cleans (with alcohol), dries, lubricates and charges the shaver at the touch of a button.  It is also waterproof and you can clean the shaver head under the tap.

Model 9595 comes with all the trimmings, including an interactive LCD, whereas the 9585 and 9565 have LED lights only.  Model 9565 does not come with the Clean and Renew feature.


Leo had another bout of amnesia and recorded a TTTT for the PayPal Security Key which he had already covered in Episode 382.  This is their second attempt.

Flip Clock Screensaver

Dick and Leo talked about the flip clock in Episode 488, after Dick read out a letter from listener Gary Bennett.  Steve L. from South Jersey has found a flip clock screensaver, called the fliqlo, a free download from 9031.com.
