1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have one of these, I dropped in on concrete the first week I had it, about a 1cm square of the screen shattered. They replaced it for free :slayer:

    I use one of these, it is disposable and keeps the screen clean and scratch free.

    I looked into getting a silicon case for it but the dude at the shop said it wouldn't help if I dropped the phone but it might make it easier to hold. I don't find it difficult to hold I dropped mine because I'm an idiot.

    I'm not at all careful. I've given previous iPhones to hookers and broken at least two by throwing them against brick walls and one by drunk driving into a tree. The screen was never the delicate part, it was always the housing. Get a rubber protector for the case, no need to protect the touch screen.

    I didn't want the iphone 4, but I had to get it because I got drunk and left it in the cab that took me home.

    good news on the consumerism front. thats what SF is all about right?? :)

    i have a droid x and i dropped it once and shattered the screen to hell. i dont think any little plastic screen cover would have helped. i mean you drop glass on concrete its gonna break. i try to be as careful as possible and have insurance on the phone so if it breaks i dont get horribly raped on the repurchase. enjoy!

    You could buy those add-on telephoto/macro lenses for the iphone...they come with a tiny adhesive disk that sticks around the camera lens (so that the add-on lens's magnet will stick).

    Or you could buy a phone made by someone else...Other companies seem to have figured out how to design their phones so that the screens and camera lenses are ever so slightly recessed so they don't get scratched by microscopic grit when they sit on a table. Sometimes apple goes a little bit form over function like the damn 1-button mouse idea (I know that it forced software designers to come up with better interfaces...but I would rather right click on shit without using a keyboard shortcut)
