Customer rank: +4 -1A collection of 36 ideas and variations. Some are descriptions of substantial routines, others are merely an initial spark of an idea. Dale started this manuscript with a few variations on some work sent by Liam Montier. It continued to grow including variations of tricks Dale found in other ebooks and books.
In "Bits and Bytes", you'll learn:
D. D. Home PC: Prove the presence of the spirit of D. D. Home on a friend's borrowed laptop.
Mind Over Mint: A three phase bending routine using a tin of mints.
Tossed Out Wallet Ploy: Apparently give away $26 while keeping your trusty, lucky, $100 bill.
Forbidden Fruite: A prediction taken to the extreme, and perfect for the corporate world.
The Forcing Board and Other Ploys: A new take on the "Any Card At Any Number" plot with other ploys for the plot also described.
Blot: Get credit for revealing a person's four digit PIN.
And 30 other amazing items. Culled from Dale's private notebooks, the majority of material is published here for the first time ever. There are sure-fire routines, and there are a couple of riskier routines (such as "The Unlucky Chair" chair routine).
Items used in the effects include: a laptop, a tin of mints, a wallet with cash inside it, a blindfold, coins, playing cards, markers, crayons, rubberbands, a coin purse, silly putty, a tabletop Carnival Crane Game, a mechanical grabbing hand, perfume botles, cell phones, and other things.
Most of the routines and ideas in "Bits and Bytes" were kept among a small circle of Dale's friends. Now it is your turn to make miracles by using this material.

I purchased this ebook some time ago and thought I had posted a review. So here it is. I found this ebook to be full of wonderful little surprises. While there are some effects which one might use "as is", I found the greatest value of this work to be the inspiration to create your own effects and presentations. There are plenty of tricks out there but precious few works which are open ended enough to allow one to create his own.
If you are looking for inspiration, as well as some creative thinking, I very much recommend this item.
