Raspberry Pi-Hole Blocks Ads: 
Dennis writes, "I wanted to share a cool use for RaspberryPi that I recently found www.pi-hole.net it's very simple, just one line of code." What does that line of code do? Pi-hole.net says “Hardware Ad-Blocking” and “Why spend $149 on AdTrap when you can spend $35 on a Raspberry Pi." Find out more in the video! 
Best GPU Under $150? 
@revtmyers tweets, "Running an i7-4770k. Is there a graphics card for < $150 that would benefit for gaming and video quality? Not editing videos." We've got three cards that'll spank the onboard graphics in that CPU... watch the video to find out what they are!

This is a first. JY writes, "I need your gift ideas for my girlfriend. She likes dancing and yoga. I love your show and happy holidays." Patrick's got a list of gifts, and a strong recco for YogaGlo's streaming video service! 
Stop Vertical Smartphone Videos!
The rant of the week award goes to Jim, who writes, "As a proud member of the "People Who Hate Vertical Videos and The Knobs Who Take Them" club," ... "is there a setting in Android, or is there a utility or camera app that has a setting, to prevent the video orientation from changing from horizontal?" Shannon's got an app for you, called Horizon, but it's got some caveats. Find out what they are in the video!
Compact Stereo Amp: 
@virgiliocorrado tweets, "@patricknorton any suggestion for a compact amplifier that you can connect to a computer which then outputs to rca & speaker wire speakers?" Patrick says, "I've had good luck w/ the Lepai LP-2020 amps on @amazon..." and he's got a couple more recommendations in the video!
