Detailed information

The In Your Face Viewbase has an adjustable grip that holds all models of the iPhone and iPod Touch, or any PMP up to 2 inches wide, at the end of a flexible 8" neck, which you can clamp on to a tray table on a flight, your monitor, or above the dashboard.  Do not mistake it for the iFlyz which Dick did in Episode 783, even though it costs the same $29.95.  The Viewbase does not use a suction cup as does the iFlyz.  To salvage his pride, Leo tells us that he first saw this product in January at MacWorld Expo, way before Dick did the iFlyz, and you can use it as a hands-free device in the car, and in the gym, and sock yourself in your face, as Leo deftly demonstrates.

Airport Accommodation

Back in Episode 616, Dick and Leo complained how airports seem to have been designed to do everything to prevent you from sleeping or lying down.  Shashank Sivaji recommends the Dubai Airport, which has long wide lounge chairs.


Phil Baker, who wrote in Episode 795 about his book From Concept to Consumer, explains that he is no PR guy, but an engineer/product developer, and offers to show Leo gadgets in production in China.  Dick thinks he bought a Sham Wow towel from Phil, but he's obviously mistaken - a reference to This Week In Tech Episode 188.
