Johnny is home for Memorial Day. Leo's going to Hawaii and wants to know if there's a good Luau to look into. Johnny says he's only been to the touristy ones and he's not impressed. A few deals - Priceline had a mistake this year and offering $130 trips to Asia via Europe through New York. Tickets to Turkey, Beijing, and since they're only one way, you'd have to pay full fare to come home. But a great deal. And Johnny says it's not required to honor the mistake, but they almost always do because it's a PR nightmare. Johnny will Tweet it after the show, so stay tuned.

It's not available yet, though. The chatroom says it has a battery that isn't replaceable and you have to send it back to get it replaced.
