It also matters if the case is on it or not.

As for the weight, ya, but I'd rather deal with the weight than take a bullet to the chest or back :P

Feh, I am way to careful, hearing all the horror stories of people breaking their calcs. And not caring

Ya, the no case might have done some and hitting the edge probably will because the shock is more focused on the edge.

That is because he didnt have the case on, so something pressed against it and *crack*

Qazz, he said it was in the case :P
Shmibs, that is surprising. The only way it might not do this if the program is executing bcall(_getKey) (like how keys work on the homescreen, with 2nd and alpha not returning), or if you get lucky with the checksum (very unlikely)
Very interesting...

It seems that one good thing TI did was to make the calcs durable.
