I haven't a clue, Kev. Something to do with Ipods?
But don't ask me what they are either.  ;D

Watched it this week and enjoyed it but would have liked a better discussion by the experts about how the techniques are used. Apart from canework which one contestant dispised yet I thought the wine decanter and glass was the best piece in the whole show.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Hmmm, I did something wrong and my message disappeared.

Watched the end of it on Wednesday with my friend. Was disappointed in the end, but it was because of the personality, not their skill with glass.

All in all, enjoyed the show.
