Dick DeBartolo, The Giz Wiz

Episode 1031 (1:43:23)

Dickie D got hit by a surge that fried out his computer power supply and monitor. He even had a surge protector which did nothing. Leo says that surge protectors often benefit because they have insurance to cover when it does happen. Fortunately, he has "a guy" that could come by and replace his power supply.

This week's gadget is the Quirky Nimbus 4 Dial Dashboard. The dashboard uses your mobile device to keep an array of info up-to-date and available at a glance. So you can wake up, look up and see your commute traffic conditions, the weather, your emails, calendar, social media networks, and more. The main Nimbus Dashboard is $129.99. It will be available later this month at Quirky, ThinkGeek and some other high end retailers. Other link devices will be added as time goes on.
