SHOW SCRIPT

WII GAME SPOOFS CELEBS VERIZON RE-IMAGINES THE HOME PHONE...
IPOD NANO OWNERS COULD HAVE SOME CASH COMING THEIR WAY...
PLUS CELEBRITIES IN THE RING IN A NEW WII GAME.
IT IS TIME TO GET ALL SYNCHED UP!

HOPE YOU ARE HAVING AN EXCELLENT DAY...
I'M RICH DEMURO AND THIS IS THE SYNCHED UP SHOW.
A DOSE OF TECH INFO THAT FITS YOU BETTER THAN A 40-THOUSAND DOLLAR DRESS SHIRT.
LET'S GET YOU STARTED WITH YOUR MUST CLICK VIDEO.

IT'S A MUSIC VIDEO CALLED MS-DOS 5 UPGRADE...
FROM YO M-S WRAPS...
THE YOUTUBE POSTER SAID HE FOUND IT IN THE BACK ROOM OF HIS OLD JOB.
THE 5 MINUTE MUSIC VIDEO FEATURES A RAPPING MC RHYMING THE BENEFITS OF DOS 5.0 - NAMELY IT'S PRETTY GRAPHICAL INTERFACE.

MY FAVORITE LINE -
WONDERING WHAT COMMANDS TO USE, SELECT FROM OUR DROP DOWN MENUS.

IF YOU HAVE A FIRST GENERATION IPOD NANO...YOU COULD HAVE SOME CASH COMING YOUR WAY THANKS TO A SETTLEMENT.

APPLE WILL PAY UP NEARLY 23 MILLION DOLLARS TO AFFECTED OWNERS...
THE CLASS ACTION SUIT CLAIMED A MANUFACTURING DEFECT IN FIRST GEN NANO'S MADE THEM SCRATCH TOO EASILY.
YOUR NANO'S SERIAL NUMBER IS ALL YOU NEED TO SEE IF YOU'LL SOON BE BANKING 15 OR 25 DOLLARS FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

APPARENTLY MINE IS NOT A WINNER.

NOW FOR THE DOWNLOAD. IT SEEMS EVERY WEBSITE HAS IT'S OWN WAY TO HELP YOU SHARE IT'S CONTENT.
BUT SHAREAHOLIC MEANS NO MORE SEARCHING FOR A BUTTON.

THE FIREFOX EXTENSION ADDS AN ICON TO YOUR TOOLBAR THAT LETS YOU EASILY SHARE, BOOKMARK AND EMAIL WEB PAGES WITHOUT LEAVING THE SITE YOU'RE ON.
IT WORKS WITH ALL MAJOR SHARING SITES AND AS AN ADDED BONUS, WILL EVEN TELL YOU HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE HAVE BOOKMARKED THE PAGE IN DELICIOUS OR DUGG THE CONTENT.

VERIZON WIRELESS HAS A FEW NEW TRICKS UP IT'S SLEEVES...
THEY'RE LAUNCHING A NETWORK EXTENDER AND RE-IMAGINING THE HOME PHONE.

FIRST THE EXTENDER.
IT PUTS VERIZON WIRELESS SERVICE JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE BY ROUTING YOUR CALLS THROUGH A HIGH SPEED INTERNET CONNECTION. THE BOX WORKS WITH ALL VERIZON HANDSETS, SEAMLESSLY SWITCHING YOUR CALL FROM THE BOX TO A TOWER WHEN YOU WALK OUTSIDE.
IT'S 250 DOLLARS.
IN A SOMEWHAT RELATED MOVE - THE COMPANY WILL UNVEIL THE NEW VERIZON HUB IN FEBRUARY.
IT'S A VOIP HOME PHONE OF THE FUTURE THAT INTEGRATES INFORMATION ON YOUR CELL PHONE LIKE CALENDAR AND CONTACTS. THE HUB DOUBLES AS A DIGITAL PICTURE FRAME WHEN NOT IN USE.

STILL, IT'S NO VIDEO PHONE. WHEN IS THAT COMING???

FINALLY - WHAT DO JUSTIN TIMERLAKE, JOHN TRAVOLTA AND SIMON COWELL HAVE IN COMMON?
THEY'LL ALL HEADED INTO THE RING.

PARODIES OF THE FAMOUS CELEBRITIES WILL GRACE THE UPCOMING WII BOXING GAME - READY TO RUMBLE REVOLUTION.
THE GAME FEATURES 16 CELEBRITY IMPERSONATORS INCLUDING SYLVESTER STALLONE, DAVID HASSELHOFF AND SHAUN WHITE.
ACCORDING TO USA TODAY - THE COMPANY BEHIND RUMBLE SAYS IT WANTED TO MAKE THE NEW VERSION MORE FUN AND APPEAL TO A MASS MARKET.

YOU CAN STILL CREATE YOUR OWN BOXERS FROM SCRATCH.
THAT'S IT FOR THIS EDITION OF THE SYNCHED UP SHOW...
REMEMBER TO SUBSCRIBE TO US ON YOUTUBE OR ITUNES SO YOU NEVER MISS A SYNC.
I'M RICH DEMURO - DON'T SAY I DIDN'T TELL YOU SO.
