1.0 out of 5 stars crystal cases destroy phones, 5 Jan 2010
I had a crystal case and believe I should warn potential buyers that they destroy phones (bit of an exageration).
Fair enough if you use a 'crystal'/plastic case for a laptop but a phones attract grit and dirt like magnets. If you have it lying around in your pocket grit will get between the phone and cover. I have a chipped screen and cover which I will have to replace. I'd suggest leather or gel cases.

I wouldn't solely use this book but it's definatley worth it if you can get it cheap.

If you're beginning Xna it is well worth… Read more
