Mmm...I would really like to see someone do that for real. IF there's any damage, the glass is definitely not going to shatter like that (must be safety glass). O, and there's nothing up to the stupidity of some users. you should know Etienne ;)

any reports on playing paperboy on the ipad?
I enjoyed it for a few hours but i don't think I'll come back to it often (no the reason is not because it's not MY iPhone).
Maybe if you could turn the bike just by bringing the iPhone up or down it would be more intuitive... just a thought.
I kept missing my targets with the newspapers because I had to use my thumbs both for going left/right AND for shooting.
Overall nice port anyway, thanks for the info, Polaris!

That would help me answer my question: "do I really need an iPhone?".

very simple answer: NO!!! iphone = most overrated gadget E-V-E-R

The iPhone is by far , and really , by very very far the best smart phone you can buy. Yes, it is not cheap but worth every penny. No substitute really.
Shame on you ! :-)

...ooops, hadn't noticed that... looks like I have to steal my GF's iPhone again to test that, thanks Polaris (from me, not from her  ;)).

Didn't rate paperboy on the iPhone much, played it as couple of times and it never got loaded back up again.

There is a FREE cartoon version of operation wolf available on the iPhone and its pretty good!
