Hammer and Oprah share the same favorite piece of new technology—the iPad. "The iPad changes everything," he says. "It's unbelievable."
The day before he flew to Chicago for The Oprah Show taping, Hammer says he had a meeting with Apple to pitch a new iPad case, the ZAGGmate by ZAGG. "It wasn't an invention of mine, but somebody came up with a case that if you drop it, the screen doesn't break and then if you stand it up, it becomes a keyboard—a Blue Tooth wireless keyboard. So when they showed it to me I said, 'Well, Apple has to see this.'"
"I'm really kind of stunned. Who knew you were a geek?" Oprah jokes.
