Yep I used my iBook several times as a flashlight last night until I found the lost headlamp.
Just pulled a big window open - barely dented the battery.
I think I'm going to get in some of the USB lights and you know I had one and didn't even think of it yesterday would have been perfect for reading
Thankyou - that just might come in handy in the future. Damn that would have solved some problems last evening what a goof I am at times.
I second Lars here... Heart - that's a hot one for sure!!
Yeah, I used the screen on my Nokia 6610 in my apt. I use is quite often as in the dead of darkness, and can be pretty bright - I just need to negociate the stairs as they wind between floors. No iPod yet...
But I wonder if Apple would maybe jump @ shooting an ad inspired by the quote - I would. Make it online only campaign.
I used my Blackberry back-lighting as a flashlight (night light, really) in the stairwell of my building. We also used our iPod once. Pretty handy feature.
Now, if they would only make one of those nifty, twisty lights with a FireWire connection...you could use your iPod as a flashlight without having to keep turning on the backlight. It would also be handy for reading while you travel...and listen to some nice tunes too.
