  1. Hey Leo! Great gadget gift ideas! I have to tell you how I feel about something, though. I was listening to the latest TWiT, and I noticed how kind of… irritating Jason Calacanis is. He was poking fun at Dvorak the entire time, and got off-subject a lot. He flaunts the fact that he has lots of money, AND it sounded like he was just trying to improve his public image by endorsing Audible, not endorsing it because it’s an advertiser. Just wanted to let you know that I don’t appreciate having him on TWiT.
    At one point I added him as a friend on Facebook, but I noticed that my news feed was slowly being taken over by him. He only uses his “friends” as marketing tools and does nothing but publicizes Mahalo. He’s too obsessed with marketing/money, and is very biased. I had to remove him as a friend. Other than the ones that he is on, I love your netcasts!
    Sorry for ranting, but I felt like I had to speak my mind.
    Have a very merry Christmas!

  2. Bill Handel’s list says Voltaic Messenger bag will charge laptops. On the Voltaic Systems web site, however, the last item in Specifications says “Note: It is not designed to charge laptops, it will however charge cell phones, sat phones, PDAs, GPSs, iPods, cameras and most other handheld electronics.”
