Short info

Leo uses his real voice and Dick tells of fake boxes with Gotcha Gift Box.

Detailed information

Designed by graphic designer Arik Nordby, these gift boxes are available for sale through The Onion.  The recipient is misled and disappointed by what is revealed by the gift box, only to find the real gem inside.

Audible is back on DGW

Leo has said elsewhere that Audible is not featured on all of TWiT except DGW because of the short length of the show, but apparently Audible does want to be on DGW.  Quite right too.  Leo suggests "An Evening With Dick Cavett".  Sign up at www.audible.com/gizwiz to get your free download.

A Place for Dick

Chaz Benedict, who lives near Petaluma, writes in to correct Leo who said in Episode 549 that there is no Sheraton in Petaluma.  Dick is going to Petaluma to visit the new TWiT studio.  He likes what he sees, the big desk, the Aphex Aural Exciter, and the Heil microphone.

TWiT Live

TWiTLive.tv is up and running, with new staff Colleen and Frédérique.  Earlier Leo was streaming TWiT.  Follow Leo's Twitter updates on TWiTLive at Twitter.
