Short info

Dry your clothes quickly and easily with the Mini Countertop Spin Dryer.

Detailed information

Portable Spin Dryer

A companion to yesterday's Wonder Wash, the Mini Countertop Spin Dryer spin-dry your laundry (2.2 lbs dry laundry capacity) in 2 to 3 minutes, ready for ironing, or hang-drying.  Unlike the Wonder Wash, this does use electric power (82W).  Portable as well, 15" x 13.5" x 13.5".

Play for MAD 500

Today's the last day for Dick's WTHII contest.  We're playing for MAD 500.

Bringing down a Site, Live

When Leo did the Screen Savers, any mention of a website on the live show used to bring the site down.  It's now happening all over again with TWiTLive, but not when you use SquareSpace.

Refrigerator LED Light

John Fiedler from The Woodlands, Texas may not be a huge gadget fanatic by GizWiz standards, but shares with the crew certain gadget fascinations, such as flashlights, radios and LED lights.  Recently his 20-year-old refrigerator finally broke down.  He was surprised to find that the GE Profile Series uses an array of LED lights.  The conventional 40W incandescent bulb has been replaced by a blue LED.  Opening a fridge has never felt so comforting.

The Fixer

Leo is not exactly a handyman when it comes to fixing things like the microwave, as he has no tools, only a butter knife.  When he needs a butter knife, it's always in the garage and he uses his tongue (cf Jackie Mason, says Leo).  But when it comes to fixing a computer, he's a magician, as Dick witnessed in person while doing the Screen Savers.

What A Scandal

Leo confesses that although he has a Toothpick Bird (Episode 282), he's never owned a Spork (Episode 182) all his life.  What a scandal !

Cleaning Up after TWiT

Leo and his TWiT crew had a ball doing This Week In Tech two Sundays ago.  Wine, women, song and a lot of cleaning up after himself.
