>> Coming up on CNET Live, how to use your cell phone to connect your laptop to the Internet. We live?
>> Oh, Bonnie Cha shows lasting carnation of the T Mobile Side Kick.
>> And we'll talk to Mike Dudak and Justin Day about Blip TV. It's all coming up right here on CNET Live.
>> Live. ^M00:00:28 [ Music ] ^M00:00:35
>> Yeah, basically live. Brian Cooley, Tom Merritt, CNET Live. Here on this fantastic Thursday taking your calls at 8889002638, 888900CNET.
>> That's toll free by the way.
>> Well you call, let's say you call next week, because you missed this show.
>> You'll get to talk to Jamie, she'll be there.
>> That Jamie.
>> She'll sit there.
>> You keep an eye on her.
>> She'll give you the instruction set that you need. You know because there are a few things you need to know before you get on the air with us.
>> Because we're strange.
>> Think of it as kind of a little live mini SDK she's going to give you over the phone.
>> That's right, yeah.
>> Develop your question for applying it on the show. I'm going to shut up now. We're going to get right into a couple of things we crave. [ Music ]
>> We have some of our favorite things in the Crave Blog at Crave.CNET.com.
>> Oh, fashion boy.
>> Yeah, baby.
>> It's Miguel Caballero, bullet resistance coats.
>> Did you say bullet resistance?
>> So this is a line of high fashion clothing for celebrities and other public officials.
>> This looks good.
>> Who need to look good but also need not to be shot. [ Laughter ]
>> That's a couple of very good versions, but useful parameters.
>> Yeah. The, the coat here is totally bullet resistant. They also have shirts and pants, over coats, suits.
>> But I see here it has, there's also a stab resistant lining.
>> Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So even with the slow knife coming up against you, yeah.
>> I like how it doesn't look really bulky. It's clearly not like a vest. I mean it looks like a regular piece of Garman trend, but it's not cheap is it?
>> No, it's a couple thousand dollars. I mean, on up to 9800 dollars for the most expensive.
>> Well, you know its life saving gear. This is not you know frivolous.
>> That's amazing because this actually looks really good.
>> I mean if you're in that kind of a deal.
>> Obviously you're going to have to go with the hoodie if you really want to get the whole protection.
>> To get the full, full noggin protection. Ok, check this out. If you're a car tech buff like I am and you have an iPhone, which I haven't been able to get yet, you can put Dynolicious on there from the At Store and this turns your iPhone into an Accelerometer, using the Accelerometer built into the iPhone. Now I always knew you could do the orientation sensing by turning it vertical.
>> I didn't know it could do speed.
>> It'll do g's and speed.
>> That's awesome.
>> So it'll tell you what your cornering g's are, it'll also tell you what your 0 to 60 is because it'll detect when you start moving. And then of course measure the rate as you get up to 60. I don't quite know how it knows it when you get to 60. GPS is too course for that.
>> So I'm not sure how it's figuring that out.
>> Unless it must just be doing a, I don't know, something in the accelerometer?
>> I don't know. It's very unusual, I tell you.
>> It's not going to find a whole lot of g's in my Saturn. [ Laughter ]
>> No, probably not, but you know for those of you.
>> I have an SC1, I have an SC2 maybe.
>> For those for you that have tires that are wider than oh about yeah, like Toms, this might actually be cool.
>> Yeah, yeah.
>> You can show some g's on your, it's a 13 buck download from the App Store on iTunes, very cool.
>> Let's get some calls, shall we?
>> Let's, let's do it. On the line is Kevin. Out in Alabama. Where you at in Alabama, Kevin?
>> Oh, love Birmingham. A lot of good musicians come out of Birmingham. What can we help you with today?
>> Well, I have the iPhone 3G and I'm trying to jail break, but I can't find the, the firm ware on my Mac.
>> Ok, supposedly if you go into library, you go to like your home directory, the library, then iTunes, you should find an iPhone software update folder that should have your firm ware in there. Have you looked there?
>> Yeah, I'm just looking there now, I can't find it.
>> Yeah, I did that too. I looked in mine and I couldn't find it on mine either. So, just for folks like you, I'm going to throw a link in the show notes to limited edition iPhones website where they link to the direct Apple Connection to getting the different firm wares so that you can get it and just download it directly. The other thing you can do is just do a command spacebar and type in iPhone and it'll find any file with iPhone in the title for you and that might turn it up as well.
>> Ok I've done that a couple times.
>> Still couldn't find it, yeah, ok. Go to blog.CNET.TV.com after the show, you know give me a couple of hours to put this up and then limitededitioniPhone.com has links to get directly into the Apple website.
>> Alright, thank you.
>> You bet.
>> Help out a future iPhone user here real quick. He's trying to find the Apple iPhone firm ware.
>> Firm ware, yeah.
>> Oh his hard drive as a single file?
>> As, as was downloaded in preparation for an update?
>> Yeah, like a package.
>> A package, ok. Not a bunch of scattered files that makes it up, interesting. Let's talk about thumb drives because after all that's Tom Merritt's specialty. We've got Brandon here in South Carolina. Alright Brandon, you are now in connection with Doctor Tom Merritt, the world's leading expert on doing anything on a thumb drive. I give you.
>> He just says that so when I don't know the answer I feel extra bad.
>> I give you Doctor Merritt.
>> Thank you Doctor Merritt. Yeah, I was looking, basically I put like a password on my thumb drive so when I plug it in, there's a password and then when I open up the thumb drive I have more like a virtual console, so that way, no matter which computer I'm at or wherever I'm at, I have my programs, my files, my emails, so forth.
>> That's what you want to do?
>> That's what I want to do.
>> Ok, I would recommend True Crypt for the password, I've got a video up, Insider Secret, on how to use True Crypt on a thumb drive to encrypt the, encrypt the drive with a passwords that's pretty well unbreakable, ni unbreakable. And then Mojo Pac at mojopac.com. M, o, j, o, p, a, c dot com is a great way to create portable apps out of any application and they also do like a virtualization so that you can virtualize a processor on your thumb drive. And then portableapps.com for just finding your generic apps. They've got Open Office, they've got Firefox, they've got a bunch of other apps that are already made into portable versions for you.
>> Ok. And the question I have on that is when, if you use that, set up like that, will it leave traces behind on computers?
>> It should not, no. If it's properly portablized and you're using an encrypted drive, it should not leave any, any trace that you were there. I can't 100% guarantee that, but everything is supposed to be self contained in those portable apps. So it shouldn't leave a whole lot of traces behind.
>> Thank you very much guys.
>> Alright man, hope that works out for you Brandon. Coming up we're going to show our conversation with the guys from Blip TV, but first, usually when you buy a cell phone you're stuck with a mere handful of choices when it comes to colors if you have a choice at all. Not so with the brand new Sidekick from T Mobile, take a look. [ Music ]
>> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and today we are taking a first look at the T Mobile Sidekick. Now some of you might have been reading about rumors of this Sidekick under the code name of Deco, but they have officially announced it as simply the T Mobile Sidekick. As far as the design, it's very similar to the Sidekick LX. It's slimmer and lighter. So you're going to get a bit of a smaller screen, but you've got this nice keyboard here and you've got the swivel design. But the unique part about the Sidekick's design is the interchangeable shells. It ships with two shells in the box. You get a black one and this really neon green one if you want it. But you can also create your own on a specific skin website. You can add your own graphics or images, so you can have a one of a kind Sidekick. It's very, pretty cool and easy to use. You can get two casings for 1499 or one for 999. As far as features, it ships with all the new functions that were announced with the Sidekick LX software update. And that includes stereo Bluetooth support as well as video recording and playback. And you've got some nice tweaks to the web browser as well as instant messaging. Some down sides to the device, the speaker volume is kind of soft, so I had a hard time hearing my friend. But they said everything else sounded good to them. Also, I might have like to see the inclusion of wi fi or 3D, just as an alternative for searching the web. Because the Edge Speed can get pretty slow. But overall, I think it's a great all in one communication device for its intended audience of younger T Mobile customers and it's pretty affordable at 14999 with a two year contract. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the T Mobile Sidekick. [ Music ]
>> In lime green no less.
>> Oh yes, it's stylish that one.
>> Yeah, well the phone too.
>> Everybody needs a Sidekick. [ Laughter ]
>> That's right. Everybody needs a Sidekick. Ok, Blip TV has a website for video producers who want to find a larger audience for their shows both online and on TV. Brian and I recently had a chance to sit down in the Cisco Telepresence Suite to speak with Mike Dudak and Justin Day from Blip TV about how they're helping producers turn their passions into their day job, take a look. [ Period of silence ] So, Mike, Justin, Blip TV, where does it fit into this world of everything from the goofy, unwashed, mindless crap on YouTube all the way to the networks putting the big shows on their websites. Where are you in this continuum?
>> Where we focus is really on TV shows on the web. And you can kind of sub divide that, explode it out a little bit and on one, on one side, you have like the networks putting Lost and all their shows on the web, kind of repurposing television for the web. And then on the other side you have people making like original shows for the web. Sitcoms, news magazines, dramas, political talk shows, how to shows and everything in between. I mean it's just amazing. Lots of stuff you can't find on television because the opportunity cost of TV it's just like too high, right? In order to be successful they need technology, they need distribution and business development, they need marketing and PR, and maybe most importantly they need ad sales, right? And we see these things as services of scale. These are things that are very expensive and very difficult to have in house, especially when you're trying to produce a great show. And so what we do is we offer those services to the show creators and then we make money by doing a rev share on advertising.
>> What services do you provide? What kind of a package?
>> Well we fit most of the tools around content creators rather than around the viewer experience. So what that presents is a lot more options for distribution, a lot more options for optimization, options for really controlling the experience that you want your viewers to have as a content creator.
>> One great example of that is that we allow people to customize our player, put their own branding in it and put it on their website and they don't even have to know that the video is hosted on Blip TV at all.
>> So it sounds like you guys are sort of acting in the old media terms as the network for the production house. So if I'm my own production house and I shoot my video and I start to build my audience, you'll help me gain that audience and make a little money off it because you do revenue share.
>> The networks have all been an economic of scarcity, where there were like very few channels to the audience. And so they had this huge massive opportunity cost for putting programming out there. And then they had a lot of leverage over content creators. And we live now in an economy of plenty, like you know distribution is kind of full, content is kind of full, technology is in many ways commodity. So our relationship with content creators is very different. We're a supportive network and we make money when they make money.
>> Does everything get sold? You have blanket sales? Is that how everything gets sponsored or do advertisers kind of say, I want to sponsor that franchise and not the other one? In other words, do you get stuck with high traffic turkeys that you can't find a sponsor for? [ Laughter ]
>> The way that ad sales work at Blip is kind of simple. We have, we have two main tiers of sales. We skim off the cream, we skim off the really successful shows that either have large audiences on their own or have really valuable niche audiences. And we sell those direct to sponsors. And they really are, they're buying one or a few shows specifically for those shows. And then for the shows that aren't quite there yet but are growing to the point where they can be sponsored, we have something we call, we actually call it Braun internally. It's a video advertising network of networks. And we work with pretty much everybody out there, Video Ad, Google, Scan Scout, Po Daddy, YouMe, it's a long list. And we've basically built some technology, some business processes so that those guys are constantly competing against each other to see the inventory on Blip. And for every view, one of these guys is going to serve an ad.
>> It's important to remember that all that stuff is opt in as well. So.
>> You know, if you want, if your show is just starting out and you don't want to associate advertising with it and you're trying to build an audience, then you can, you know not opt in to the, it's actually opt in. You're by default you have no ads.
>> So if I want to set up a show, what do I have to do? Do I have to get approve from you guys? Is there a set up cost? How does all that work?
>> Just sign up and start uploading and generally our content team will, if you've got a decent show, will come along, discover you and give you some tips and help you get some promotion and kind of help you get off the ground. And then from there the ball is rolling. And you take off into stardom.
>> What works on Blip and on the networks that you partner with?
>> I think the biggest thing that works for web shows is getting in touch with the community.
>> So, you know getting, you know get them to feed back, involve them in the show. You look at a show like Jet Set where it's sort of built around a community and it's been wildly successful because the content comes back from the viewers. And you get a really nice feedback loop. And that's, that's sort of what the audience on the web especially is really looking for is a chance to be a part of the show as much as just watching it.
>> Where is this all going right? Right now we've got video on the Internet, we've got TV video and then TV is kind of trying to put it on the Internet and every once in a while you see a Media Zone or somebody sneak on to the regular old TV. Eventually it's all going to be coming over the same pipe. It's all going to be coming into your home over the Internet. But is there going to continue to be this difference between the major television and the web video? Are we going to see these shows starting to merge where there's just kind of a continuum?
>> Big question that I think remains to be answered is whether the traditional network production model and business model can be applied successful to niche content and to what we would today call independently graded content. And I don't know that the answer is yes to be honest with you. I think that the way that their business models are developed and the way that everything that they do is developed, it's going to be very difficult for them.
>> Alright, guys, thanks for the time, appreciate it. Mike, Justin.
>> Thank you.
>> Alright, thanks.
>> Thanks guys.
>> By the way thanks again to Cisco for letting us use their Telepresence facilities on both ends to make that interview possible. Pretty amazing how it's really like you're there.
>> Fun talking to those guys.
>> Yeah, the Blip TV guys have got, you know, one of I think one of the smart models out there for this rapidly changing video landscape out there. Ok, time to take a quick break. When we come back, we're going to have the download of the week right after this. ^M00:15:13 [ Music ] [ Commercial ] ^M00:15:20
>> Are you ready Kelsey?
>> Yeah, I'm here.
>> I love what you're doing with my cookies.
>> I'd like to discuss some of my new ideas with you. What about jellybean cookies?
>> Ryan [inaudible] says he knows product.
>> But when he should be sitting at a lab bench, what is he really doing? Dancing, laughing and sometimes you'll even find him in bed. Get the message Brian Tom? Product evaluation is not supposed to be a good time.
>> Paid for by analysts who are not allowed [inaudible]. ^M00:15:53 [ Music ] ^M00:16:09
>> Ok, welcome back to CNET Live, 8889002638, that's the phone number line thingy if you want to give us a ringy. Made a rhyme.
>> Hey, you're funny.
>> Oh I hate me. Ok.
>> Time for the download of the week.
>> Save us.
>> Yeah, please. [ Music ]
>> Download of the week is brought to you by our good friends at CNETdownload.com for [inaudible] of spyware, free free software. I was stuck on this machine the other day, needing a CD burner and because this is a CNET issued machine.
>> The CD burner that would normally come preinstalled, because most of these do now.
>> These days, wasn't here. So if you like me have no CD burner and you need to burn a CD, CDBurnerXP is an excellent choice. It's absolutely free and it works really well. Plus it's got a nice little simple interface here where it says I need to burn an ISO. Usually if I'm in another program, I've got to go. [ Both talking ] That, which is not a big deal, but this has got burn the ISO right off the top. This was made by geeks for geeks.
>> This is the Open Source you think?
>> Yeah, I believe, I believe it's Open Source. It's definitely Free Ware.
>> Definitely Free Ware, that's nice because one of my machines, it might be this one right here, my ThinkPad, the integrated Windows XP burning functionality just went poof and it's never coming back without a rebuild which this machine doesn't need, so I haven't been able to burn disks here without constantly downloading another piece of share ware for 15 days.
>> Oh yeah, then doing the trial and.
>> And I've got 20 burners on here.
>> No, I.
>> I need this.
>> Absolutely recommend CDBurnerXP, available at Download.com.
>> Clean interface, I love that. Let's get some more of your calls in at 888900CNET, 8889002638. Let's get onto Daniel who's been waiting here for an eon and a half with a question about DVR video. Hello Daniel, welcome to CNET Live.
>> Hi. I, I'd like the, the new CNET is good.
>> Oh good, thank you. The new redesign, thank you.
>> Thank you.
>> I have a content HD DVR and I would like to get video off the video capture device, but that would take too long because there's so many videos. Is there a wait to like connect it to my laptop or an external hard drive and just like drag and drop the videos onto it?
>> Let me ask you a couple questions about this, because I'm not familiar with the Comcast DVR. I've got a Tivo where I do this, but they have the Tivo software that allows that to be done over the home network. Do you have any kind of software from Comcast to put that DVR on a network?
>> It's not the Tivo software, it's their own Comcast software.
>> Right, but it does, but it does make it show up on your home network?
>> No, it's just a standalone box.
>> Do you have a USB drive, jack on the back of it?
>> There's USB fire wire.
>> Ok, so you've got that. Let me just see if anyone here has a, information on two things I'm looking for. One is how to figure out what kind of a codec it's using to get your, here's something here up on VideoHelp.com which will give you, give us some ideas. Let's work through this together here for just a second and see what we can do here. Let's see. The fire wire ports, it says here outputs in the rare, but I have a deck that does this, DVHS format.
>> Ah ha!
>> Ah ha! All Comcast channels it says here are encrypted through that port. There's a problem. Let me see if anyone's got an answer to that.
>> Not that I'm finding. Everything I'm finding says like get DVD express or something like that and then you just.
>> Real time.
>> Going to have to do real time transfer because of that digital rights management that the Comcast DVR puts on there.
>> You're not, you don't happen to have a Comcast DVR with Tivo on it do you?
>> No, ok, not lucky enough for that.
>> Yeah, this is the Comcast interface, right.
>> Ok, the problem is they've encrypted these streams because they don't want you to do that. They don't want you to take say Battle Star Galactic episode and transfer them onto your computer because even though you might have a fair use right to do that, they're afraid of piracy, they're afraid of you then taking it and uploading it to the Internet. I think that is a consumer unfriendly because those shows end upon the Internet anyway.
>> And you as a law abiding citizen who just wants to have this appearance, you know of something, maybe you were on TV or something, on your computer or you want to transfer it to your mobile device to view, you're not breaking any laws. Their, except that they've encrypted it. If you try to get around that encryption and break that encryption which you could probably do, you're going to be breaking the law, because the Digital Millennium Copyright Act specifically says you may not circumvent encryption except in very specific cases. So.
>> Ok and real quick here, I've got something for you. Let's see, I've got a blog post here from a guy who says he has done this, he's gotten it off of a Comcast DVR onto to his Mac, into a DVD. We will, the page is loading really slowly. We'll get this up in the show notes. This is the only person I can find who says that have done a Comcast DVR to DVD by transferring a file out to their Mac and doing it in, I don't know, either iMovie or FCP. We'll find out and get this link up for you, ok?
>> That might help you out on that one. Thanks for your call.
>> Alright, let's go to line 5, Evan is on the line. Hey Evan, thanks for calling.
>> Hey guys.
>> What can we do for you?
>> Yeah. I just got the iPhone 3G a couple days ago. And the battery life kind of sucks.
>> Yeah, I've heard that.
>> Yeah and I was wondering if there's any good accessories out there that attach to your iPhone or iPod and charge it up a little bit more to give you a little more extended life?
>> Oh Brian, if you, do you know of any accessories for charging that would work for an iPhone?
>> I don't know of any.
>> I know some general tips I could give you to just kind of improve the battery life.
>> Now when you say, what is it about charging that is.
>> He just wants to keep it charged on the go I think, right?
>> So you, I mean obviously you can get the, I don't know if you've seen these, you have the adapters that plug into a cigarette lighter in your car and they have a USB jack on the other end. And all that's out of there is five volts on the power pin. So you can always plug in your, your iPhone included cable right into to that and charge all the time. We use one of those in our cars for my wife's iPhone. That's, that'll keep you going in the car. Is that what you're thinking of?
>> Yeah, and I was just thinking like what would be a better way to conserve battery life?
>> Oh, to conserve battery, yeah.
>> Yeah, some good tips, turn off the wi fi or turn off the searching for the wi fi. Turn off the 3G if you don't need it. That's, that's going to suck a lot of stuff. Fetch your data less frequently. Go in there and tell the mail apps to only check every 15 minutes, every 30 minutes. If you're in a low or no coverage area, you can pop it into airplane mode. That'll keep it from searching all the time. Get the brightness down, turn off the EQ on your music. And even just minimizing the use of location services, whenever those apps say can it use your location? Tell it no. Obviously all of these things sort of limit your functionality. But various ways you can figure out which ones impact you the least, that'll help you with the battery life. There's also a good little iPhone 3G maximization tutorial over at Gizmoto that I'll throw in the show notes at Blog.CNET.TV.com.
>> Alright, thank you.
>> Alright, Paul writes to CNET Live.
>> CNETLive.CNET.com. He said I've heard about all these phones with fast Internet and I've heard about people using them with their laptops. Please show how to use your phone to the laptop as a modem. Now what Paul is talking about is called tethering and here's Mark LaSeea [assumed spelling] to show you how to do it in this week's Insider Secret.
>> Hey everyone, I'm Mark LaSeea for CNET.com. Today I'm going to show you a way to take advantage of your Smart Phone's high speed data connection and tether it to a laptop over Bluetooth. It'll allow you to browse the Internet anywhere you get cell phone service. All that on this Insider Secret. ^M00:23:55 [ Music ] ^M00:24:06 Right now this only works with phones using Windows Mobile, so make sure that your phone is running the latest version that it can support. First thing you want to do is pair your phone with your laptop. For max go to Bluetooth preferences in the upper right corner of the menu bar so you can add the phone through the set up assistant. In Windows Vista, you'll need to locate your Bluetooth manager and add a new connection. This process usually involves typing in a new miracle pass key so that the laptop and the phone can talk to each other. Once you've got your phone paired up with your laptop, go to Internet sharing on your mobile phone, select Bluetooth pan as the PC connection, regards of whether it's a Mac or a PC and then hit connect. The phone should then connect to your high speed data service. Next, head over to your laptop and tell it to connect to the Bluetooth network pin on the phone that you just paired it to. And then you should be ready to go. Try and connect to a website using the browser on the laptop. If it connects, you've done it. You're now using your cell phone to connect to the Internet but be warned though, this uses a lot of data. So only attempt this if you have an unlimited data plan. And the latency can be kind of high when you're browsing, so it might not be the speediest experience in the world. Thanks for watching. I'm Mark LaSeea with CNET.com. [ Music ]
>> There you go, smart, smart move there Mark.
>> Yep, tethering is very handy especially when it's your last best way to get online.
>> Alright, let's take one more call on the line from Las Vegas, lucky Paul. Hey Paul, thanks for calling in.
>> Hey. I got a quick question guys. I just got a Mac Book Pro and I wanted to know what's the best way to get Windows? Is it VM Ware, Parallels or that new one, Virtual Box?
>> Virtual Box is one I have not tried yet, but that's the freest way to go. VirtualBox.net. There's also a VM Ware fusion beta that you can get in on for free, if you want the VM Ware Fusion experience, but, like I said, I haven't tried Virtual Box and I really need to get around to doing that. But between VM Ware and Parallels, I've found Parallels to be a little more limited but a little snappier. VM Ware Fusion works great though. They're almost identical. The beta runs a little slower than the regular VM Ware Fusion or the Parallels. And VM Ware has told me that's because of the bug checking and if you turn that off, that would help the performance a little better. But, but really I mean for free, that's what I run. I run the VM Ware Fusion beta right now. One of the main things, if you do use multiple screens?
>> I know you can integrate it, like I've seen it, people you know where you use both at once without actually switching you know from the actual software.
>> Yeah, if you use multiple screens, VM Ware Fusion beta lets you run in unity mode a Windows program and move it around from one screen to the other. Parallels and the regular version of VM Ware Fusion don't yet let you do that.
>> Ok. Alright, thank you.
>> Alright, that's our last call.
>> Hope that helped you out.
>> Now it's time for the best of the web. [ Music ] And the best of the web is brought to you by our good friends at CNET's WebWare.com and this week they turned us on to something called 12 seconds. 12seconds.TV, the name tells you a lot. It's a video twittering platform. Do you believe I'm bringing this to you?
>> Yeah, seriously, who are you and what have you done with Brian Cooley?
>> So it's like doing video twitter. 12 second clips is all you can do.
>> Instead of 140 character limits, like you have in twitter, you have a 12 second talking limit or video.
>> And just put up little burps and farts and spits of what you're doing right now.
>> Is that what we've got up there?
>> Just like twitter. And so yeah, here's what it looks like when you go to the overall interface. You've got all these people that are basically putting up their crazy thoughts on top of their head. The way this things works is it has an integrated capture utility that will use the web cam you tether to your computer or that is built in to your laptop. So as soon as you go to the app, it's going to use your camera here and capture right to the service. And then you put on whatever tags you got to do and put it up. And you get little gems of wisdom in this interface here, kind of like Flicker where you've got sort of a, a, you know a show trail here to the right. You're photo.
>> This is Johnny's quote of the day.
>> It is Johnny's quote of the day. Let's check out Johnny and end the show with a little bit of his wisdom, shall we?
>> Never kick me in the balls. My mother kicked me in the balls once. Once.
>> Quote from Johnny Dangerous.
>> Once. Ok.
>> It's fabulous, have you ever seen Johnny Dangerously?
>> I don't think so.
