    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.
