Just figured out that Sitemeter.com tracks clicks. It's not something they tell you in their free reports (which are pretty good btw). So, when you click on a link, they know where you're headed.

I bought a cheap iPhone cable, and it broke, as expected. The soldering in the connector wasn't secured, so a wire snapped. The order of the wires is red, blue, white, green.
