Short info

Talk hands-free while driving with the visor-mounted Blueant Supertooth 3.

Detailed information

Leo has given his Supertooth Light (Episode 362) to Jennifer, so he can get the new and improved BlueAnt Supertooth 3 for himself.  Like the Light, the Supertooth 3 is a bluetooth hands free device designed to be mounted on the visor.  Its Text to Speech capability announces the Caller ID or the name of the caller, and you take the call by saying "Accept" ot the speakerphone.  Supports voice dialling (as long as your phone supports it).  Full duplex, noise and echo cancellation.  Instruction guides in 6 languages, although Leo's seems to stick to French.

Switching Roles

Leo suggests that one day Dick shoud be the host and Leo should be the Giz Wiz, then Dick would know how hard Leo works.

They've already done that, for this year's April Fools Day, in Episode 537 (Spear Hats).  Obviously Dick didn't feel that way at all.

Shoes and Frogs

Leo has lost his emails (which Dick forwarded to him), and Dick has to read one again.  In Episode 637, Leo seemed to think that the word "zappos" (as in the online shoe store zappos.com) is related to "zapatos" (the Spanish word for shoes).  Loyal listener Alex asks his Spanish professor, and apparently zappos means "frogs".
