    For me, I got the NYTimes alert and used iRealSMS to quicksend to my buddies.

    Moments later my friend in Washington D.C. started a FaceTime (over 3G, jailbroken) from the White House to me here in New York and it was like I got to be there with him. Amazing!

    How did technology help you stay connected?

    It didn't. I stumbled on to it on the BBC site whilst looking up sports scores for the weekend.

    I saw a strange facebook message saying "Its all over facebook now!" (although nothing was on my wall yet) then a friends status popped up announcing it, then my iPad beeped from the CNN app and I read about it.

    Using the Lockinfo HTC Plugin. That's basically it. Everything else is how lockinfo is at default. It's the HTC plugin that makes the differ. Just configure the HTC plugin settings to your liking. Oh yea, I had to get rid of the default lockscreen clock too. Easy to find on cydia.

    The notification tabs will seem differ to those who haven't updated to the newest version yet. And I don't think I've seen the small icons next to the notifications in previous versions. (like the CNN icon in the pic)

    I was just about to ask... I was wondering if that news was brought to you on an extended battery. Good thing you happened to mention that. :rolleyes:

    I found out about it on Twitter.
