Dropped Mine today, it slipped out of my hand and hit the parque floor and crack, screens bust. This seems to happen when the screen lands parallel to the floor, other times when the metal has hit the thing bounced, but not this time.

The good news?
Well - its still fully functional though I have had to cover the cracks with sellotape to stop me planing the skin off my fingers...

Oh.. and it insured so I get a new one as soon as they're in stock (ie Not til after monday when VAT drops to 15%

Time for an update on apps. I've been using Evernote for the last month or so. It's very useful, especially the offline facility and the ability to 'clip' parts of webpages. For example, I've got the page where Marina goes through the meals at the last GME and I can email flight bookings to it so that they're always on hand.

The other one I like is the WorldView which came with the iPod. You choose the webcams that you want in your favourites and view them in landscape. On mine I currently have:

Madrid
Warsaw (I can watch them putting up the new building next to the Holiday Inn)
Boston
Hong Kong - Victoria Harbour
Madrid, Glorieta de Atocha
Madrid, Plaza de España
Madrid, Plaza de Callao
Madrid, Puerta del Sol
Madrid, Plaza de Cibeles
Madrid, Plaza de Colón
Gizeh Pyramids
Moorea (one day...)
Cape Town
Venezia
London - Stratford, Olympic Stadium (in construction)

I'd like one fixed on the night sky in Finland to catch the Aurora Borealis.

I also have the Facebook and Twitterfon apps.

Anyone else use WorldView or have more application tips?

Default Do we have enough for a NFS band?

I find these Iphone applications most enjoyable. The days of bands carrying their gear around in huge vans is on the way out.
