I have an  iSaver, which is pretty much just a microfiber cloth cut to  
size and stamped "iSaver", that I put between de keyboard and screen  
when I close my PowerBook, to prevent the bodily fluids that oze from  
my fingers and end up on the keys from gunking up my LCD.

And it doubles nicely as a wrist pad when folded up. Prevents sweaty  
trackpadding wrist and presumably counters the corroding wrist rest  
problem, too.

Why do people with closed minds always open their mouths?
