Yesterday our laptop bit the dust. Well I suspect it will be fine once I get it back to my IT guy and he reloads Windows and does his other magical stuff. Right now, however, we are stuck with our iPhones. . This happened to us once in 2003 in Chicago and we just went and bought a new one. Now we are in a small mountain village in Switzerland that doesn't even have vehicles and most certainly doesn't have a computer store. If there were an Apple store, I think I would own an iPad. During the day I can use our host's computer if I really need it, but I can hardly wake him up in the middle of the night because I want to post on MP.
