Saw a car whilst out walking on Monday (UK). I considered the possibilities of an almost-broken-off street-sign pole but it was still too firmly fixed so I had to resort to glaring at the car. :)

Johnhh - never used any kind of portable phone or other device except a laptop, which is difficult to use when walking. :)

And android is so bug-ridden and exploitable anyway I would certainly never contemplate using such a disastrous virus-prone device!
