    So I bought a leather flip case from Sena for my Galaxy SIII. Great case, only problem is that the times when you're most likely to drop your phone are the same times you have the front flap unclipped.

    ...And sure enough, I dropped it two days ago on a train platform and smashed the shit out of the screen. That's a $270 mistake right there.

    Moral of the story is, life sucks.

    Toby, it's because you bought a flip cover. Like the iPod mini, everybody knows it's for girls..

    I do agree - whilst the "slip" cases (or whatever you like to call them) are a bit less convenient than a flip case as it takes a second or two longer before you're able to see your phone's screen, I prefer the slip cases as they are slimmer and seem to protect the phone more.

    I have an iPad (TBM - no, not an iPad mini) "ultraslim" slip case from Sena, too, and it's great.

    Oh, I wasn't talking about iPad, I was talking about the iPod. The "everybody knows it's for girls" is taken from Borat :)

    How much!?! Look for independent guys that will do it - My old man can replace them, the screens are only ~$50, plus an hour or so labour.

    Has anyone else noticed that The Hanger Project's banner ad (usually on the right column) for Saphir polish has a rookie mistake?

    It reads: "Shoe polish at it's best"

    I suspect that is for iPhones. With the Galaxy, you apparently have to replace the 'digitiser' which is of a piece with the screen, and it's an expensive part. I got a couple of quotes and did some Googling and nothing suggested that $270 was excessive... :(

    Clients ask us what phones they should buy and we say 'anything but a Blackberry'. :)

    Then half the time they come back with a Blackberry that the sales droid talked them in to.. :facepalm:

    Oh my God I just found out that the forum has a 'block' feature and you can hide people's posts!

    Praise the 21st century.

    If I could figure out how to use that I'd only see about 3 people's posts.

    Kidding folks.
