Does it fold up or anything funky like that? - Andrew Leahey
Wow you were moving pretty good. How does it turn? - Harvey Johnson
.................. That.............. Is............... AWESOME!!! - Johnny
Is this what they call re-inventing the wheel? Apart from the 'front' (steer) wheel being at the back, this design/concept has been a round for a very long time. - Kevin J Hatton
Kevin, the Terratrike, a tadpole-type (the other one is "delta") tricycle steers in the front (Ackerman steering), not in the back, only Leo hasn't figured out yet how to adjust it properly and screw down the handlebars. This model is too small for him, as he'll soon be bound to discover, but there are other brands on the market, of bigger size and far better quality. - ianf ⌘
Thanks for the info ianf⌘, it is good to know that this wasn't truly representative of this new design. - Kevin J Hatton
Well, Leo's mouth-agape reaction was typical, representative of the initial awe one feels while riding a recumbent trike. It's like being in the fairground "radio cars" of the fifties. But he's quite mistaken that he is "very low to the ground." This is average height for such trikes, with eyes on the same level as in fast convertibles; there are competition trikes with 20 degree seat... more... - ianf ⌘
It is NOT too small for him and in fact was custom sized for him from the factory. He rides it daily and loves it. - Jeff Yonker

Why is the Comedian in The Watchmen such a g-d horrible person? I'm confused by this whole movie. Also, too much slo-mo.
he got messed up by the Vietnam War. I think he was twisted to start off with but got worse during the war. - Richard South

yay! SC mention :D - Heather Solos
Even better, Chucktown - Heather Solos
Here is the article Leo is referencing: - Q-tip
When did Bono become an authority on predicting the future? - Q-tip
The trend of services overtaking products has been the trend of the latter part of the decade. As an example, everything that's come out of Google, Squarespace, Citrix... Leo's sponsors. Products have been sparse, mostly smartphones and SFF PC's, and not necessarily more powerful PC's. - Q-tip from IM
Tease: The Google phone, the Apple tablet, and the future of tech. - Leo Laporte
great show today - Chris Heath
its pooh butter - jkm
yeah, some people even use peanut butter too, like leo thought at first - Chris Heath
Hi, I'm interested to know what app Leo used while he was talking about the Bono article - Dan Lavie
either safari or firefox... it was on the new york times ... here's the article again (q-tip posted above) but this version is printable, all on one page, so you don't have to keep clicking through the pages - Chris Heath
"I'll buy whatever Apple come out with" that about sums it up doesn't it? - jccalhoun

Tease: Steve Jobs loses one and wins one, Apple enters the TV biz, and a Macworld Expo preview... - Leo Laporte
Hello from Pasadena, CA, is Andy in town? - George Mag
I won my Fantasy Football League and I am considering buying a Motorola Droid today. I have an iPhone 3GS but I think the Verizon network is faster than AT&T on 3G. - George Mag
will it be a good thing or a bad thing that apple wont be at macworld? - Aaron
Macworld was always a fringe event, Apple is mainstream now and CES is a a mainstream event. - George Mag
Funny how they throw out the Red Carpet for TWiT now we are the biggest name at the conference ;) - Mark
I don't think MacWorld ever had a live feed except for Apple's Keynote, they made too exclusive. - George Mag
yeah but 99.9% of apps will not make the big money - Mark
why is this news that a small number of the millions of developers are making big money? its the same for all markets - Mark
The Killer App for Android has yet to reveal itself. - George Mag
Tap Tap Revenge also has in-game downloadable content that you pay for. I should know. :( - Seth
some PC indie developers make millions, some make pennies - Mark
What true for stocks is true for Apps, Pennies add up, its total transactions that count. - George Mag
yes but its running at 320x240 resolution - Mark
so 500mhz is plenty - Mark
I'm ready for the "death" of traditional TV. If a show isn't interactive in some way (ala TWiT) or topical (news, sports), there's no reason to stream it "live". All the standard dramas and sitcoms will go on-demand, per show, with "release dates". - Ken Sheppardson
And it looks like I totally missed the point. Again :-) - Parody
I'm not talking about some alternative to video, I'm just talking about the way the video is delivered. - Ken Sheppardson
Maybe every 15 minutes you could just say "For those of you who tuned in for the [15|30|60|...] minute version of MBW, thank you for joining us and see you next week"... then just keep going. - Ken Sheppardson
What to Choose: IMAX 3D versus RealD versus Dolby 3D for 3D Movies? - 3D Vision Blog -- - Ken Sheppardson
Ken, the only reason I don't like th Audible ads is since I joined, Andy has cost me a lot of money... Plus I am shopping for a new car in March... I have been looking at a Ford... GAH, GET OUT OF MY HEAD - Johnny
lol johnny.... you're "one of us... one of us... one of us" - Chris Heath
George Mag, have you used the TurnByTurn navigation on android 2.0? voice activated (like ford sync) with street view pictures (with hi-lighted arrows on the road where you need to turn) ... it's pretty killer... the phone itself costs as much as a tom-tom or garmin and you get way way more than those devices offer (for only a small monthly service charge) - Chris Heath
good show do u think we NEAD A APP SHOW - daveccorey
Did Leo find somebody to take his Mustang to CES? If not, I nominate Paul. - Hawklu

Have an expired passport? Need to flee the country? You CAN get a new one issued in under 48 hours. Dress slutty & bring your checkbook.
I don't have a cheque book - Johnny
Doesn't that work for expediting just about anything? - Akiva
I was actually wondering this. My parents are going to Mexico next week but my passport is expired. If I needed to get there quickly, say if one of them was in the hospital or something, would I be able to get some kind of emergency passport issued? - Rochelle

After what you've been through, the Shining can't be scary. - Dave Friedel
I thought the Shining was hilarious when I was younger (OK, except the old woman!), the woman who plays the wife just cannot act. However, I agree with echostreamer...that cinema is kinda creepy. - Amy
Wait, what's scary about the Shining? I thought it was a comedy... - Thomas

Walmart in Canada has no competition - Greg
The only reason my parent's bought a PC is because they couldn't afford a Mac. Now that netbooks are cheap, they bought one of those. They wanted a computer, not a type of computer. - Johnny
