Short info

Get personal directions directly from K.I.T.T. with the Mio Knightrider GPS.

Detailed information

Another GPS from Mio, whose Mio Digiwalker H610 was the subject of a previous TTTT (Episode 302).  It's a navigation system for a car, and the main distinguishing feature is the voice of K.I.T.T from the original Knight Rider TV series (William Daniels).

There is a video demo of the Knight Rider GPS from Knight Rider Online (a site dedicated to the TV series), or you can catch it on YouTube.

Pay Cheque

Dick got his first pay cheque for 18 months, and decided to treat himself to Verizon Business DSL.  His video stream should look pretty good now, especially after Pat Grosswendt of Litepanels (Episode 562) sent Dick some LED lighting.

More from Leo

Leo can't find enough to do, and has set up an audio server for TWiT which provides audio streaming of TWiTLive (which is either live or pre-recorded, depending on the time of day).  It's just like internet radio, and you can get the stream on twit.am.  You can catch it on your computer, iPhone or PSP.  In the meantime, Leo is getting Tony Wang to set up video podcasts, and the Daily Giz Wiz will be one of the video programmes.

It's Not A Death Trap

Jeff Pacitto from Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada suggests that Leo make a quick trip to Toronto to visit Amber, buy a Smart Car from one of the dealers in Canada, and have it shipped to California.  Since Leo made his $99 reservation for a Smart Car (Episodes 661, 666, 667), he has received a lot of emails either singing its praises or denouncing it as a death trap.  There goes the Smart Car sponsorship.  "It's not a death trap!" Dick and Leo quickly add.
