Holy crap are these effing strong magnets. A coworker stuck them together without the two nylon washers they ship with between them. I had to use a part of the building as a leverage point to slide them apart from each other. You don't think 75 pounds of pull force spread over an inch is much to overcome but you cannot pull the two magnets apart, you have to slide them apart and that isn't easy.

Tempted to pull the trigger one of these: They are on Fab (http://fab.com/1vdmzs) for 18.50

Seattle-based Luxe Plates does only one thing, superbly. Its stainless steel iPhone 4/4S covers sport original illustrations by world-famous artists. Each image is photo etched—a technique used for the printed circuit boards found in virtually all electronics—to create stunning plates loaded with grooves and texture.

I ended up buy this pinlo concize metal, instead for $14. It was on Fab also (http://fab.com/1vdmzs). I know it's pretty boring compared to the others but I need some side protection.

Bought a white one for the wife also

Let me know what you think about those New Balance, I saw a pair of these and I am interested in hearing how you like them.

I got the minimus mt20's and I really like them. Going to use them on an actual trail tomorrow to see how that goes, but they have been great on pavement. I wanted something with more protection than my fivefingers.

Will do. I only have one 5 mile run in them so far. I like them, but I'll post up more of an opinion on the MR00's once I get some more miles logged.
