    Gadgets I talked about on the Nick Digilio Show, WGN, November 29, 2018

    Some how I got suckered into doing Nick's show once again.

    They operate their guest procurement the way scams operate. They call you on the phone and say are you "Dick DeBartolo". You automatically say 'yes' and then they insist they have you on record as saying "yes" to being on the show!

    Anyway, it's usually fun (mostly). Here's a quick list of what I talked about mostly. And remember, Amazon prices can change at any time!!! These were the prices I found online at 10 PM 11/28/18.
