Do you have any reports on battery life?

Mac128 wrote:One follow up question: I assume in the jail-broken state, iTunes will back it up and make archive copies as usual? An occasional system restore has been de rigueur since I bought mine to keep it bug free. If not, then I would assume any data accumulated during the jail-break would be lost.

Are you referring to my avatar or the Mini vMac icon?
My icon is of course the classic 128K and is PMS 423 beige.
The Mini vMac icon is both a Plus and platinum as Paul Pratt prefers the Plus icon given that the Mini vMac technically emulates a Plus. It also emulates a 128K & 512K, but that is a build option. The default option is a Plus. Also, platinum is the universal color for all Macs after 1986 and was the color the Plus was the longest. There was room to write Mac Plus, but at the scale it was reduced to, it was completely unintelligible and Paul preferred the cleaner version. As for light and shadow, it was designed to match the OS X icon style and ultimately signed off on by him. It still remains a build option and not default, since Paul still clings to the smallest possible files sizes which OS X graphics inflate unreasonably.
