    Note - since this really isn't feedback or a suggestion for the forums, I moved this thread to the iOS and Apps forum.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Why would there be a noun for people who use one particular feature of a device? Do you go around calling people "emailers" because they use email or "downloader" because they download an application?

    Regards

    I believe the current draft before the UN states that such a person should be called Dennis.
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    This is so close... almost perfect!

    How to make it perfect???

    "iBuyer" or maybe even "iLoader"

    Remember, if it doesn't have a small "i" in front of it, the name won't count!
