*DEBUTS

If you've peeped the $45 Tool retail package, you know that in addition to the CD, it contains a video screen and speaker (rechargeable via USB), an elaborate color booklet and a code for MP3 downloads. But did you know that if you open and close the panels in precisely the right order, the package will dispense up to six ounces of fine Stilton? Just keep trying; you'll get it.
