I am a serious fan of Apple (but don’t say fanboy). Still, when I think of Valentine's Day and what to get my wife, Apple never comes to mind. Maybe for a birthday or for Christmas. For this week, it's all about restaurants and flowers (maybe some chocolate).

Thanks. My dad and I have been trying to get my mom another Speck case for her iPhone 4 but no one here sells them for those anymore. That was a nice deal.

I tried Note Rocket the other day. Didn't care for it, the UI is just blah.
