I've just noticed PayPal have an interesting feature - you can download your transaction history, by date range, OR just the transactions since your LAST DOWNLOAD. Awesome - many sites are missing this feature. Some of the online banking sites don't even remember ANYTHING - date range, file type (csv etc) - from one export to another - you have to enter everything for every account. Just amazing.
Nexus 7 Android Tablet
I finally have an Android tablet - I've been thinking about getting a Kindle for a long time as a way to catch up on reading during my daily commute. The paperwhite looked good but I couldn't order it from Amazon because they aren't shipping it to Australia and Dick Smith only just started selling it at $169. So when ShoppingExpress had the Nexus 7 16GB for $199 plus postage, I thought that'd be good. A full tablet instead of an eReader, and a little bit heavier, but I think its a good compromise and I can use it for so much more.
New screen protector for my phoneWhen I got my HTC Incredible S (on an Optus plan) they put a screen protector on it before giving it to me. So I never saw the screen without it. The protector had a kind of grainy-ness to it but the screen looked okay. Recently the protector started looking pretty bad and it was time for a new one - and WOW, what a difference. This protector is different, not grainy, totally clear but I assuming its not too good for reflection! It was also very easy to put on since it is a stiffer plastic and doesn't bubble. Right now my screen is looking totally awesome and like a brand new one!
