The way I see it, being dead is not terribly far off from being on a cruise ship. Most of your time is spent lying on your back. The brain has shut down. The flesh begins to soften. Nothing much new happens, and nothing is expected of you.

Not along ago I got an HTC HD7 phone, for which I wanted a resilient case of some sort. I ended up with a PowerSkin case that is protective and that also includes a battery. Clever idea.

Whilst perusing the box, I noticed the following clarification. Really? Someone is confused about this?

PowerSkin packaging that includes the note '(phone not included)'
