Hi Gadgettes,
Welcome back Molly!
I know you have beat the alarm clock topic to death, but I couldn't resist sending this to you from Uncrate.com.
(p.s. you don't have to put this on your podcast, it just for your enjoyment)

invisible shields and producers
by sheala / July 28, 2007 5:44 AM PDT

invisible shield info here: http://www.shieldzone.com/
I hear it's stuff developed within NASA and if you go see one of their reps at a tech show, they hand you an iPod covered in the stuff and a box of rocks to rattle it around it. The podcast review I heard on it was really good. Gotta love super space plastic.

Bye Ariel! Sorry the ***** chased you off! Good luck!

I like the evil twin of Jason. Makes me wish he'd talk on BOL.

I just saw the invisi-sheild video...
by shawnlin / July 29, 2007 11:58 PM PDT

somewhat impressive...what is more impressive to me is that the material is derived from stuff that protects the leading edge of helicopter blades.
I'd imagine the helicopter blades are needing protection from sand and dirt - if the material protects against that...I'm in. I think I'll get a full-body wrap for my 4G iPod and maybe just a screen protector for my Nokia N800.

Best,
Shalin

I use Invisible Shield!
by breeze1138 / July 30, 2007 2:23 PM PDT

I have it on my Creative Zen Vision:M, PSP, DS and Canon Powershot SD630 LCD screen. And I just ordered another one for my cell phone.

I never worry about scratches when I have any of my devices in my pocket or if I put them down on the floor or whatever.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
