After this weekend, I’ll be relinquishing the new 3G iPhone to the rest of the Shiftworkers, for it’s actual purpose: development testing for mobile web sites and apps.

So we got burgled, while we slept. They took our wallets, a phone, a camera. And of course our home laptop. They even remembered to take the power cord too, bless. So not only do we have to cancel a bunch of cards, we also have to change a bunch of passwords on popular sites. […]
