    I'm open to suggestions for a decent "find me a ... near me" as the ones I've tried so far (Locations and AroundMe) both seem a bit limited, especially when it comes to pubs - I don't want a list of all the local chinese take-outs and chippies when searching for a pub!

    As a true Hunter-Gatherer-Geek, I find I don't need artifical aids in finding pubs

    Another vote for juice defender, keeps the desire s on the go for 2 days at a time. I'm a light user tho I think, and I only have the wife's older phone to benchmark against.

    Just found Google's Chrome to Phone - sends links or copies text from Chrome browser on PC to phone, e.g. spend time on PC researching which product to buy, then send link, photo, model number etc to phone so you can be sure what you're looking at in store is the right one. Obviously needs Chrome on PC and a Google account, but pretty cool if you have both those things.

    Along similar lines, ChromeMarks syncs bookmarks between Chrome and phone.
