Nice background! Its interesting without being to annoyingly busy and it makes your presentation look much more professional. (except when you are unshaven)

The finest BT headset I've ever seen or used is the WEP410 from Samsung. It is extremely small, has a 30' range, and has volume control on the device as well as hang up button. I don't know for sure, but I would dare say that it might be smaller than the iPhone headset shown on this show.

Thanks for the z9 review, and for testing it with a noisemaking device. I've been wondering if I made the right choice buying a Jawbone (it hasn't come in yet), but after seeing and hearing the performance of the z9, I think I'm going to be happier with the Jawbone, evenif it's a little bigger.

David said:

You used the Z9 headset upside down. You had the dual microphones aiming up in the air. Perhaps try it again using your right ear and with the microphones aiming down.

Also make sure it has the latest firmware updates. They made some huge improvements from it's initial launch.

Sky Scout "Once you know where things (stars/planets) are you don't need this anymore", made me laugh out loud, thank you.

You do know their location moves, of course you do, got me again.

Good review, I really enjoyed it but you tend to be a little long winded. I would be great if you made some of your explanations a bit more concise. Other then that, well done :)

I enjoy the show, but I'm not sure about the recommendations for the Skype handset, even for travel. A few months ago I picked up a 3-in-1 headset from GE at Target for around $20.
http://www.jascoproducts.com/products/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=0&idproduct=460

It plugs into the headphone and microphone jacks on my laptop. I can use it with Skype or other programs like IM or Audacity. It is wired, like the Ipevo handset, but is hands free. I can be on a work call and typing notes at the same time which is a big bonus for me. The microphone is detachable so when I'm at the airport listening to music or watching another riveting episode of Neo-Fight, it looks like I just have headphones on. Also these fold up and are easy to toss in my laptop bag for travel.

I'm also not sure about the Mophile iPod case. This is partly because I had a silicone case for my Nano, but the screen was open and unprotected from scratches. I replaced it with a GelaSkin from http://gelaskins.com/ (M.C. Escher lizards design).

For a little over a year I've had the Nike iPod Nano armband and really like it. It appears that Nike has come out with a newer version that doesn't have the same clean looks that the original one had. See http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/clothing/nike-gives-in-releases-ipod-nano-armband-140662.php

The original was made from neoprene. I could attach is securely to my arm and the neoprene would stretch and hold secure. I usually routed the earbud cable through my sleeve to my back and out the neck to keep it from bouncing or snagging on things.

You couldn't see the screen, but you didn't need to. There was a raised center button and you could feel all the click wheel controls. Set up a running playlist, put on the armband, hit play, and go.

I actually used this some on travel and at work. It fit snugly up under my shirt sleeve and just the earbuds popped out of the top of my shirt.

Tiffany should appreciate no bouncing with this armband either.

I enjoy the show, but I have to discount this week's ratings.
