Short info

It's Turn the Tables Tuesday, and there's no Telling what games Leo will be up to with the SpearHat.

Detailed information

Dick and Leo switched places today and Dick turned the tables on himself, or so it seems.  Today's gadget is the SpearHat which Dick saw at Toy Fair.  6 rings included.  The website says onion rings will also work, or as Dick and Leo suggest, try some fruit like apples, melons and bananas.

Dick on The Digital Home

Dick has also recorded a podcast today as Don Reiseinger's guest on CNet's The Digital Home Podcast, in which he talks about today's episode, Al Jaffee and Mad.  Listen to Episode 9 of The Digital Home Podcast here.

Dick has appeared before on Don's blog and podcast.  See the blog post on Episode 338.  Dick has also appeared on Episode 6 of The Digital Home Podcast.


Anish, rhyming with quiche, a regular correspondent on DGW and an occasional correspondent on Buzz Out Loud and Security Now!, from Vestal/Manhattan, New York, responds to Leo's query in Episode 504 about a digital picture frame which he could control remotely.  He suggests one of eStarling's wifi-enabled photo frames which you can update via email or RSS feeds through integration with online services such as Flickr, Photobucket and even iPhoto.  No subscription necessary.  That's how he sends his photos at school to his parents (from Vestal to Manhattan?).  See also Episode 518 for another listener's suggestion.
