    I've known people to have this problem, still at least with the iphone you don't get dust between the screen and the case like I had on my 6220 classic.

    My ipod shuffle was taken out of action by a tiny shred of chocolate bar wrapper. I'll never know how that happened :S

    my iPhone 2G used to have this problem. a paper clip and 10 minutes later, it's fine.

    now, just always remember to blow over the ports of headphone jack and dock adaptor before plugging anything in.

    At work we regularly have some kind of apple product on our bench that needs fixing/updating or replacing. The latest one had been put through a 50 degree wash and the Iphone 3GS prior to that had been totally destroyed by horse hair! We opend it up and it was full of the stuff.

    Pressure air. Cleans everything. The dust DISAPPEARS, doesn't go anywhere else, I swear!

    Beat me to it by 40 minutes. Though I was gonna say 'for shame!' instead.

    You'll have to wrap it in cling film when you put your phone in your pocket :)

    "A while ago the in-line remote of the my headset stopped working"

    "If you're in-line remote has stopped working"

    As already mentioned 'you're' means 'you are' :)

    Yep, makes a body long for the simple, gadget-free cabin-life seen at the end of the movie "Minority Report", no?

    On a related note, the slogan you use a lot (or used to use) on the podcast, "Shure, they won't let you down", is wrong.
    Mine just did. Thankfully, unlike the first pair I owned (which suffered the same fault), this pair died just before the waranty expired.
    The new slogan needs to be "Shure, they'll let you down at around the two year mark." ;)

    I think I will have the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy... similar design.. but in my eyes... better..... but if even the mighty samsung can't modify a copied design... then who can?!
