So, for those of you angsting about your precious glass, or more realistically, your precious internal components and sand/steam/water but unable or unwilling to buy a case, might I suggest....a Ziploc bag!. Specifically, I've found the quart size Ziploc freezer bag to be almost ideal for the Droid at the beach...or the Droid near the shower...or the Droid while brushing one's teeth. It's not going to waterproof it, but it'll make it a whole lot more water and steam resistant while not interfering with your ability to use the touch screen or hear the speaker. Also, it is excellent to use if your fingers are going to be wet or grimy or some combination ofn the two. For instance, a week ago when I was on "vacation" yet had to be available for a call. I popped my Droid in a Ziploc and went to the pool; sure enough, that's when they called. I picked up the call through the Ziploc, asked them to hold, and had the time to dry my hands and hair before unbagging the Droid. I wouldn't try, you know, testing the limits of the Ziploc's airtightness, but as an emergency or just water-resisting measure: it's cheap and surprisingly effective. NOTE: I WILL NOT BE HELD REPONSIBLE IF YOU SHOULD TAKE YOUR DROID SCUBA DIVING IN A ZIPLOC. This is not to be taken as a foolproof method of keeping your Droid safe. Much like "safe sex", this only reduces NOT ELIMINATES your chances of damaging your Droid. OTOH, should you find yourself stuck in the rain on the side of the road with no umbrella, needing to Google AAA, a Ziploc will start looking pretty nice. May this help someone keep their Droid from dying.
