    so anyway I'm curious about the dust thing. We'll see if it happens again.

    The Delta power units that I have used are standard for American plugs.

    not so anymore. Most flights I take have either no power or AC.

    Volume isnt an issue. There is a patch out through preware to modify the audio levels and increase the output and if you dont see it there you can search this forum for the thread and install it directly.
    Volume is an issue on planes. I shouldn't have to hack a new device in order to listen to it. This is one reason I returned this 1st gen device.

    yes but the TP has location services that estimate where you are at. It should use that and set Ur time zone. Of course for this TP you Also need a wi-Fi connection. Some airports have free wifi. Phoenix, las vegas, and ABQ come to mind.

    ok about an hour and a half into my flight and i can feel the residue building up on the screen. This time its not as bad but could feel it around the right side. Must happen with these types of devices although never felt it on my pre-.

    Used it for something like 6 hours on flight and did not noticed any specific dust issues.

    Will check again next week.

    As far as battery on flight, about a week ago I watched 2 movies and 3 episodes of Torchwood as well as a fair bit of gaming (NFS and Galcon Fusion mainly) on the way back from Beijing and still had 30% on landing...I had power on the 777 but wanted to see how the battery would hold up. No wifi running of course (no Wifi on transoceanic flights).

    I think I remember reading in HP's documentation that you are not to use cleaners on it because it could compromise the oleophobic coating.

    I had a similar issue with a sticky screen on my flight. Turned out I placed my ginger ale too close to my TP while the soda was still fuzzing.
