Short info

Get better visibility in an emergency or on the job with the with the Stanley 3-in-1 Tripod LED Flashlight.

Detailed information

Another new model in Stanley Tools' Tripod Flashlights series (see Episode 548 for the last Tripod Flashlight covered by Dick).  This 3-in-1 Tripod LED Flashlight (model 95-155) has 3 flashlights which can be separated and used independently, or can be used together with the lights pointing in the same direction or in different directions, since each flashlight has a rotating head which can turn up to 120 degrees.  Each flashlight runs on 2 AA batteries.

A Video Podcast?

Promises, promises.  Leo thinks that this podcast should be a video podcast, in order to show what the gadget looks like and how it works.  Dick is ready with his Dress For Dinner Napkin (Episode 636).

Cidco Mivo 250 Still in Use

Ryan Jonz's mother is still using the Mivo 250 (Episode 645).  The service was bought out by Earthlink and it is still operating in legacy mode.  Ryan has tried to get her an iMac or EeePC (Episode 447), but she would not have it.  Dick and Leo think that for people of a certain age, a more modern replacement of the Mivo 250 might be the HP Printing Mailbox, using the Presto service (Episode 279).

Twitter Clones

Abby Laporte is also on Twitter, and complains that people are following her because they want to know what's happening to Leo.  Meanwhile, thegizwiz and Alfred E Neuman are still going strong on Twitter, and the TWiT Army Laconica service (at army.twit.tv) has grown to 3,000 memebers.  And Leo is still asking us to follow him on Twitter to soothe his ego.

Stuck in Hawaii

Dane Golden went over to Hawaii for Roz Savage's landing, and is still there because he keeps being bumped off flights.  At least that's what he told Leo.  Somehow I don't think Dane is in too much of a hurry to get back.
