Dot Com Pho – The Gadget of Last Year Edition

For this final Dot Com Pho of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, we decided to head back to Pho Thai Hoa to try out more items from their newly revamped menu. We were joined by Ronald Lee from Man Meet Woman. Ronald said he’ll be bringing a couple of friends along. We assumed the friends would be some hot women since Ronald is a world famous pick up artist. Instead, he brought along two guys and our weekly pho meet up was once again male dominated.

In addition to the two dudes, Ronald also brought what he thought would be a great gadget of the week. However, it turns out Ronny was behind the times because we’ve featured his gadget over a year ago. All was not lost however as we did have a gadget of the week that saved the day.

For this week’s Dot Com Pho we have the real gadget of the week, comparing food photos on the menu to the real food you get served, killing off background noise and how I plan to buy drinks for all the medal winning Olympians. Enjoy!

  3. Haha that was a massive case. I was expecting some organic LED screen or something.

    1. It looked like a case that a secret agent would carry.

  4. Vincent Woon says:

    The mic is very clear and you can hardly hear the other noise. Do you need to get another adapter to plug the receive into the camera?

    1. John Chow says:

      No, my Canon HFS100 had an input for it.

      1. Vincent Woon says:

        Is that the AV input? My JVC only has that.

        1. John Chow says:

          No, it’s a mic input but it has an AV input as well.

          1. Vincent Woon says:

            oh! I see Thanks! 🙂

    1. Yes good for blogger like John or Jeremy or Ed Dale.

  10. krillz says:

    The issue of only being able to hooking up to 1 reciever/transmiter can be fixed using a simple singal splitter a long with an signal amplifier.

    But then again I suspect each pair has it own frequency but if that isn’t an issue than it’s just a matter if findign an electrotech student order the parts for $10 or less and let him build it.

    1. John Chow says:

      Ya, each work on their own frequency but I think you can adjust it.

  11. John, you’re a true top blogger who actually know how to connect with all kind of people. I want to be like you when it comes to connecting people together through blogging platform just like you did here.

    What do you think?

    1. John Chow says:

      I think you can do it if you put your mind to it and work really hard at it.

  12. Looks like great fun was had by all. Keep up the fine work.

  13. I haven’t yet been to a restaurant where the food in the menu’s pictures looked anything like what was served to me that day……
