i-dik

When it came to a free upgrade I chose the Apple i-phone. Bora and George Peet convinced me at the US Nationals that they were an essential tool for the job. How else can you keep the world aware of your results and still get porn in your tent at night?

Anway mine came and I was very pleased. It didnt leave my hand all day, and when it dawned on me that I hadn't yet eaten lunch, I raced into the kitchen and grabbed a baking potato and headed towards the microwave. Immediately the land line rang, and not wanting to miss this call, and with no hands free courtesy of the potato/i-phone combination, I banged the door of the microwave shut and gave it some beans.

Racing downstairs I reached the call just in time, and whilst listening very patiently to the customer, I looked down.

I was horrified to see that in my other hand I was still holding the potato.

Bugger the customer, I raced upstairs and found...

My i-phone in the microwave..

When i lost my first one into the drink i had a new one up and running in under 2 hours. Mal's dad was moving one of his boat around and bear and I were helping him. Bear said "running the 3g pretty cool"
and then the hand of god knocked it from his belt holster and straight into the drink. bear and I were howling and he had a new one withen a day

Simon, 2nd paragraph first sentence is a little suspect... "Anway mine came and I was very pleased. It didnt leave my hand all day"

Is that what you meant by iDik? :-)

The iphone has a powerful micro processor in it so it should be fine. (Cheesy I know but so was your baked potato.)
