As a matter of fact this was no droid at all – this was a malfunctioning iPod touch. Malfunctioning as in the very important home button had stopped working. I’ve had the device for nearly four years and used it practically every day and the home button stopped working over a year ago. It’s not a perfect workaround but check out this link from apple if you have the issue with yours and don’t want to fork out so much money to have it repaired. Sorry about the corny set up for today’s PSA but hey, Star Wars is fun. One final comment on the droid thing; you’ve probably saw the various inspirational posters out there – this link is a nice twist on that.
Finally, on a different note, one of my favorite things to do is visit flea markets and yard sales. The Storm Trooper is on a creature called a dewback. I snagged them both for $5 which I thought was a good deal. I bought the hot wheels in the background from a nice Hispanic family at Sadie’s Flea Market in Dothan, AL along with a bag full of toys including an awesome giant pirate ship.
I liked the following picture better than the one at the top but it didn’t make sense with my caption to have an R2 unit working with a storm trooper. LOL.
