    Today I found myself really grateful for the mirror on the back of the Pre, and I'm a guy. (Okay, I'm just playing off of all that brouhaha over the mirror supposedly being a way to woo women to the Pre.)

    I've been battling ants getting into the kitchen and am sealing up all the ways there are to get in from the walls. Today I had to seal the water spigot behind the fridge and couldn't tell whether I had left any ant-sized holes unsealed. I really needed a small mirror that I could put up against the wall to do the inspection. Ho! I pulled out my Pre, flipped it open, and I was in business.

    Okay, now for an admission. I still deal with intermittent acne -- and I'm 40 -- and I've actually used the mirror to do quick checks when I'm out and about prior to a date or a social. I guess that counts as another guy use.

    I do think the mirror makes the Pre look tacky and retro, but I'm happy for it anyway.

    I have used it on several occasions and I have no shame in admitting this.

    I use it all the time. Although I am probably prohibited from saying what that use is on here.

    I'm a man that loves his Pre mirror! Nose hair free? Check! Nothing in the teeth? Check!

    A sprint employee pointed out that the mirror is there so that you can use it if you take a picture of yourself.

    Never thought about it, but that makes great sense to me.

    Great idea! I had to silicone caulk some gaps above the sink, between a small window seal and grout at the top of the backsplash, and have had trouble telling if I sealed it all well. This will work perfectly - it will fit behind the spigot and reflect up!

    I have woods behind my house and get them every year!
    Just put out some little piles of corn meal around the kitchen. The ants eat it and take it back to the nest and it kills them all. They cannot digest it.
    It won't harm pets or anything since it is corn meal.

    I never thought I'd learn about killing ants with cornmeal on a Pre forum! Great advice.

    A mirror can be handy to see behind computers.
