That looks pretty focused? What do we think? Tweak a little bit on your focus now and I'll see if it gets any sharper. >> Okay. >> I think we're all good. Let's go ahead and... >> Five, counting five contestants. Ready to see who can type the fastest on their iPhone uses only their schnauzes [phonetic].

That way this camera gets two and Tom; this camera gets two and Brian. Tom will introduce you really briefly; then Brian will read the rules. >> We'll come in and this will be our starting positions. >> Then we go to Beonca Medigan [phonetic]. >> Michael C.--sit down brother, have a seat. >> Here's Beonca Medican. >> All right so Michael Kanellos is... >> Here's the deal get a little closer because Brian yells. >> Are you gonna go to different?
