Extended battery for T-Mobile G1

On Friday morning I ordered a extended power battery for my G1.
It's a 2200mAh Li-ion job and comes with a deeper replacement back cover.
The original battery is only 1150mAh and costs £19.56 from T-Mobile in the UK.
The high power one I brought cost £19.47 with the new back cover! Apparently the same item in the USA has been selling for around $50, so for once the UK is cheaper.
I got mine from here, superetrader , oh did I mention, I ordered on Friday morning and received it Saturday morning at 11:45, now that's what I call service!
Now does it make a difference? Well I'd say yes, I'm constantly surfing and listening to the WNKR stream using Stream furious and normally the original battery would be flat after 4 hours, the new one after only one full charge lasted over 12 hours.

Well that's all for now, Dave.

The USA, handguns and Tea!

In the light of recent events in the USA I've had 2 things reinforced in my mind.
The first is there's still a case for banning public ownership of handguns,
ask anyone who lives in Kinston Alabama!
Secondly, why should Brit tourists, looking for a decent cup of tea find that not only
is Liptonite too weak (I can't see why? It nearly killed Superman!) But they have to
hide the blog of their tour from the public incase the FBI/CIA/FCC track them down
For subversive behaviour and the promotion of strong brews!
