Short info

From the Gadget Warehouse: Beam Scope.

Detailed information

From about 20 years ago, the Beam Scope, made of precision ground lens, simply magnified the screen by 2x.  Unfortunately the angle of view is very limited and only the person sitting directly in front gets an undistorted view.

New Year Resolutions for Dick and Leo

Dick resolves to do the Daily Giz Wiz throughout 2009.  Leo resolves to lose weight, after his gastronomical orgy in France.

Squeezebox Boom Revisited

Steve Miller enjoys the CCrane Wifi Radio (Episode 712) and strikes again with his Logitech Squeezebox Boom (see Episode 682), and Dick and Leo has a similar conversation about streaming audio from twit.am and other iPhone apps.  Dick and Leo oftenn forget what they have said before, given the sheer number of shows they do, and now it seems the listeners are writing in so often that they can't remember what they've written before either.
