      Your[masked] Connect application is great! so polished! Sharing with proximity is cool too. It is fitting that you won phones all day -- thanks for giving them away again -- and then the slate. I would like to know what you have in your head! Congratulations, Shawn ~Crystal * have an awesome day :)
