Detailed information

Link: Wikipedia

In 1997, Tiger Electronics released game.com, a hand-held video game console.  It had 2 game cartridge slots on either side, and what's more, had some PDA functions, such as calendar and phone book.  The screen was a touch screen, had 192 x 160 pixels resolution and only 4 shades of grey.  There was an even smaller, pocket version, which was more expensive.  Games included Scrabble, Wheel of Fortune and Lights Out.

What was pretty unusual was it had an internet connection accessory, a 14.4 kbps modem with which you could send emails via Tiger Electronics' site.

Recording TWiTLive

Robert Taylor, who thought the Painters' Pyramids were dice used by the Luxor Hotel in Vegas (Episode 633), would like to know if it's possible to record TWiTLive.  You can access screen captures of the shows on odtv.me (thanks to kiwinerd and others).  If you want to do it yourself, try Camtasia, or Applian's Replay Capture for recording streaming video.

Or try the re-runs, although there are no published schedules for the re-run shows (which may include surprises such as the recent showing of an old episode of the Screen Savers, from Dan Hendricks, one of Leoville's chatroom moderators).
