Apparently, your life won't be complete without one of these 21st century online furbies - they connect into an existing wireless network, download your music and emails, and perform a whole load of useful features, while keeping you entertained with their cute little faces, little flashing light, and wiggling ears.

This is the part of the show where we'll be talking to our listeners and site visitors. As it's the first one, and Skype has only just finished plumbing in our special phone line, we didn't have any calls or emails to run through, so we had a quick look in our forums for a couple of discussions:
