Detailed information

For today's TTTT gadget, Leo does a "What's In The Box?", a parcel which has just arrived for him at the TWiT Cottage, with the sticker "Intel Inside".  It's a new Dell Laptop, the XPS Studio 16.  The standard specs (which are configurable) include an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26 GHz, 1066MHz FSB), Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (64-bit edition), a 16" wide-screen LED glossy display (1366 x 768 pixels, 8ms response time), HD Audio, 4GB of RAM (up to 8GB), 320GB 7200 rpm HDD, ATI Mobility Radeon HD3670 video card with 512MB, wireless-N, and a DVD drive.  HDMI port, display port, card reader, firewire-400, USB 2.0 ports, e-SATA port, built-in webcam, microphone, audio jacks, 7-Watt stereo speakers, Express Card slot.  You can upgrade to a blu-ray drive, and a Full HD screen (1920 x 1080).  Leo has taken both of these options.  Nothing but the best for Leo.

Seal Shield, Kung Hei Fat Choy, and the Future of TWiT

Alfred Chan from InsideDGW watched Amber MacArthur on commandN Episode 164, who talked about the Seal Shield dishwasher-safe keyboards from CES, which he thinks Dick and Leo should try.  Try they did in yesterday's Episode 756.  He also says "Kung Hei Fat Choy" for Chinese New Year.  "The Year of the Ox, which is suitable, coz we're full of bull," muses Leo.  Alfred has photoshopped the Obama "Future of America" button to make it a "Future of TWiT" button, with the TWiT Cottage in the background.  You can see it in the blog post for Episode 747, or currently on Dick's website.  There's also a Chinese New Year picture of Dick and Leo, also on Dick's website at the moment.  [The Chinese characters on the picture mean something like "Always with a smile on your lips".]

Crowning Glory

Before the show started, Leo showed Dick a gift from Jennifer Laporte.  Leo shared with us his moment of crowning glory on TWiTLive.
