So the one bad consequence of the fact that my iPhone went through the laundry a few months ago, other than voiding my warranty, is that the camera is blurry now. There’s probably nothing I can do to fix it, but I figured I’d post and see if anyone had suggestions out there. Everything else about the phone works perfectly, and I don’t use the camera that much, and the photos are not that bad most of the time. I’ve already tried cleaning the little “lens” with lens cleaner to no avail. It *looks* fine…
here’s a comparison though where you can really see the difference. This was taken with my iPhone camera:

And here’s the same plate, photographed with corwin’s iPhone, which has NOT gone through the laundry:
World of difference. By the way, for those curious, this was a few rolls made for us by Hiro-san at Fugakyu last night (on Beacon Street just before Coolidge Corner). The one with the jalapeno and wasabi tobiko on it was truly fabulous, a “spicy tuna” roll in a completely unique way. To the right, salmon skin roll with sweet sauce, and to the left, a more traditional spicy roll with tempura crumble in the mix.
The drink you see in the background is a “tyku mojito,” made with shiso leaf instead of mint leaves and Ty Ku instead of cachaca.
Ty Ku, as it turns out, is a “fruity sake liqueur.” It was sweet and light and refreshing, with a similar kick to cachaca (which is distilled sugar). Found this web page about it: http://cocktails.about.com/od/spiritreviews/fr/tyku_liqueur.htm
