    ***WRONG ANSWER ALERT! Maybe… just maybe… could one of these guys fall into a trap and guess the contraption that came a few years AFTER the one we all feel it is? The bigger, bulkier one that rhymes w/ “Hi Dad”?! Hmmm?!?

      @Jlane, I had no idea on today’s CotD. Andy, who posts here sometimes, has on his website the results & I’m surprised Time Magazine would claim such a thing in 2007. The Simon came out in the 1990s & was the first of this device. 2007 was merely an upgrade & a new version of this device by that company.

      The hint you give with the rhyme was introduced as a SMALLER version of the Laptop & does not fit the CotD explanation. Btw, like you I am an Android person. They sell like hotcakes around the globe.

      • JLane says:

        Somebody actually posts the results of the game that early?! WOW! I AM a tad bit on the impatient side, but I’m not sure if I’d want to know that info in the mid to late afternoon… it would kinda take all of the fun out of watching the match @ 7:30 pm, at least for me.
        And you are SOOOO right about Android vs the “fruit” company! In the states, the percentages are approx.65% “fruit” vs 35% Android BUT worldwide the numbers are just the opposite. We as a nation are simply obsessed by their products. And please, don’t get me wrong, they make AMAZING devices. I, too, have a “Hi-Dad”, but don’t spurn me because I choose to buy (for a helluva lot less!) and tote around a Samsung! They’re pretty nifty thingamajigs, too…

          @Jlane, it doesn’t take fun out of watching the game. I know some people on the west coast who read vj’s recaps & love them. Sometimes they’ll even post on FF they can’t wait to see a particular game. As vj pointed out before Jeopardy airs as early as 9 am on the east coast in some markets. I try to post hints early in the morning for that reason. Try to get ahead of the game.

          For people on the west coast who don’t see the show until 10 pm east coast time they like the way vj hides her spoilers they have said. FF is very, very popular due to vj’s meticulous work.

    @VJ, I echo Jlane’s congratulations on your spot on prediction yesterday. Fantastic! For the finals I have no favorite. Buzzy appears to be mentally & physically prepared. How about having a fitness trainer for the Tournament? Cool. Austin is a lucky guy & can pull off surprises with his DD’s. But will he find them? A lot hinges on this strategy for him imo. Alan as VJ pointed out was a bundle of nerves yesterday but possesses a broad knowledge base & wants to win big time. All I can say is fasten your seatbelts. This is going to be a ride to remember. :)

  3. VJ says:

    Thanks, JLane, wow! I finally got one right. lol. I’m real surprised at how easy this FJ is. 3/3 on that.

    On the winner, I want Buzzy to win too. I’ve been thinking the duel will be between him and Alan. Originally, I was leaning toward Alan but now I’m not sure. He seemed so nervous yesterday and Buzzy has been incredibly cool, calm and confident. Must be that “Creed” mojo. Also as I said on Thursday’s recap, Austin could still get in there with an insurmountable lead on a DD. Remember those stupendous wins he had?

    • JLane says:

      So true, VJ – Austin’s fearlessness when it comes to wagering on DDs ALWAYS makes him a threat. I’m still in awe over how simple the FJ clue is today! Thank goodness it wasn’t another question about France… I would have likely le guillotined myself if one of those came up again!

      • EricS says:

        I actually think that all semi-finals should have similar subjects and difficulties. Of course, the fair thing would be for them all to play the same game. But that would be bad tv

    First… A shout out to our “hostess with the mostess” – VJ the Conqueror! While Jacob & I were doing our best “Doubting Thomas” impersonations by predicting a 1 out 3 correct final, VJ boldly went with a 2/3 prognostication and nailed it… You go girl!!!
    Back to the CotD – OMG, could this be any easier?! This “fruit company” keeps cranking out more and more of these gadgets, and the consumers keep buying them up by the gazillions! (Personally, I’m a ‘droid guy. Go figure!) This is an across the board, 3 outta 3 sweep! And my prediction for the TOC overall winner… My heart is with Austin, but my money is on Buzzy!
