Will Chris and Leo from TechTV ever Reunite?

Leo LaPorte and I worked together a few years ago on TechTV. Since that time, we have appeared at different conferences and conventions at the same time. People constantly ask “when will you and Leo do something together again!?”. We are each doing our own thing these days, but it was great fun to get together via phone during Leo’s recent “24 Hours of iPhone”. We had a lot of laughs, and discussed many different things. First and foremost, of course, we dished about the new iPhone 3G. Here’s a peek at some of the other products we talked about.


Here we have a cute little white plastic brick with a face made of LEDs. The tiny microphone in the base picks up sounds in the room, whether it’s music, or your loudmouth boss, and makes his mouth move in time. It’s like he’s lip synching to the song! Kinda like Britney, only much much smaller, and probably smells better.

He’s USB powered, so plug him in to any powered USB port, set him near your favorite sound-source, and your little buddy will perform for you all day long!

USB Humping Dog

It doesn’t serve any purpose, but it’s what they do. They are insatiable. And that’s all we really have to say. Harley is brown and Duke is black, and you can take your pick. Oh, and don’t worry – if the kids ask what the doggie is doing to your computer, just say, “He’s trying to jump over the computer, but he got a little stuck,” or “The computer is giving him a piggyback ride.” Either will suffice.

We, of course, had to talk about live streaming. I explained to Leo that I love leaving the stream running all the time for many reasons. You never know what will happen at any given time throughout the day. You can see bloopers, chat it up with the Mods, watch me lose my patience and sanity, and even help me out when I’m stuck. Leo said that I am his inspiration for his own live streaming. He said he caught what we were doing here one day, and thought to himself “this is what I need to be doing!”.

It was great spending some time chatting one-on-one with Leo again. Keep your eyes and ears open. You never know when and where it could happen again.

  3. The only two techies you will ever need!

    I rely on these two for almost everything…(But watching Dvorak is also a hoot)!

    Man, I hope that we can see some things happen with them in a combined fashion if even only on an annual basis.

    A Holiday geek toy, Black Friday preview streamed live maybe? That would be worth getting up at 4am for…


  4. Not sure it could ever be the same as back in the good ol’ days. Of course, I also prefered Chris as the host of Call For Help, and still consider the moment where he completely “lost it” during the 24 hour Call For Help-a-Thon one of the best moments of my life. But who knows? A new collaboration could be a good thing.

  5. I think that would be great. I normally listen to Leo on his radio show and I think you would work great together again.

  6. It would be nice to see you both on the tube again(But this is not to be). You both were the best I thought back in the day on Techtv. Have no clue why it switched to G4. Yuck!

  7. I happened to catch you on the 24 hour broadcast and enjoyed listening to you two talk. I hope you get down to Petaluma someday and record something with him in his studio.

  8. hey,

    need to know which is better to get mac mini or imac.

    also need to know which is a free video conference for mac.


  9. I think it would be great if you and Leo ever met up again. You both ave great shows and I hope you guys continue to do what you do. It gives me something to do everyday.
