iDrops on my Nexus One

Possibly the worst day EVAAAAR was when I knocked my phone off a metal filing cabinet and it slid, screen down, across another metal cabinet and onto a metal desk... it sucked. Luckily the phone still worked perfect, but the screen suffered a little cosmetic damage that honestly made me friggen cry. I posted on Buzz looking for help and eventually was turned onto iDrops.

The iDrops were about $15 and shipped pretty quickly considering it was the holiday season, I'm not sure the holidays had much bearing on the shipping of a scratch remover/polishing solution, but hey they they seem to affect everything else, so why not!? Anyway, directions were simple; apply a few drops and moderately buff back and forth across the scratch. The catch here is be prepared to spend some time, like 45 minutes or so on the scratches. I spent a good few hours buffing on my scratches. I am pleased to say that some improvement was achieved. Perhaps not the 'like new' results I wanted but still pretty nice. I even pulled out a couple other devices, like my underwater HD cam (uh, cause everyone needs one of those), and saw really nice results. I am pretty convinced that best repair results are achieved on plastics. Overall, I would recommend iDrops to anyone looking to do a little scratch repair, but ONLY if you are patient enough to put in the time to get the results. iDrops are not for lazy suckas.

Some More Thoughts about Project Fi

First off... I’m still using Project Fi.This post originally started as a response to a comment about people quitting Project Fi too early and not letting the Project grow and improve... but it got long, so now it's a blog post. Boom.
I agree with many that Project Fi is still in its early stages, in “Project” mode, and has not been around long enough to work out all the kinks. The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
