    Just wanted to share my scary tale.

    I was walking back into work today via the concrete sidewalk to the door. A big nasty horsefly bit my left arm. I was carrying my 2 PDAs in my right hand.

    I reflexively swatted at the fly, sending my Treo 650 and my Zodiac2 in a trajectory of about 7 feet high and 4 feet in front of me. The Zodiac landed flat, and the treo bounced 3 times.

    Lets just say that, although feeling stupid and pissy, my boxwave case is the best damned thing I ever bought for my phone! All that I damaged was the antenna (not too badly) and a scratch in the metal stylus.

    P.S., anyone have an antenna for the 650 thay'd like to sell/trade? The one I have works great, but...

    I will leave Palm/webOS only after kicking, screaming and wrecking anything on my way out.

    - (Sigh)... It died.
