    Well, I honestly didn't want to come across as mean - and honestly, one would at least hope that info coming from C|Net would be somewhat legit. But I knew people were hoping for something that wasn't likely to happen as soon as I read the article and saw that the C|Net blogger heard it from "a contact at Verizon". So many rumors seem to come from these mysterious "contacts".

    As for OS release info, the ONLY reliable info comes directly from Motorola, as they are the ones who initiate the soak test and decide whether or not to "pull the trigger" on the OTA. I don't believe a word I hear about an update anymore, until I actually hear about a soak test being in progress.

    As for fun stuff to do on the phone? Lately, i've been laying off the custom ICS Roms and things like that, and have been concentrating on some of the new games that are out (I have a Bionic, and our ICS/GB hybrid ROMs are less than reliable).

    If you are into shooting games, "Max Payne" was released today for the whopping price of $1.99 - and the new Disney tie-in version of "Temple Run" came out today for $0.99

    I have also been somewhat addicted to "100 Floors" and "Dooors!"

    Between those 4 games, I think i'll have plenty to keep myself occupied until ICS comes along.

    Have you updated lately? I'm running version 3.03 and it's really smooth on my old DX.

I use all of the above with no problems (knock on wood) but just recently I had updated the purple version of Neon free Go Launcher Ex theme by 7k. Immediately after updating I started getting ads in my notification status area. Air push detected that as the problem app, I uninstalled it, ads disappeared.
    I think as long as you stick with the apps by the go developer team you will be okay. I have also had good luck with ZT.art's go apps. I won't be using 7k's anymore.

    Like FoxKat suggested, some go apps will give you problems so, as always, install then keep watch.

    I'm not 100% sure how it's done, but there is a way to opt-out of the ads served up by Airpush. I think we need to get used to airpush, as it's very dev friendly and it does present a viable alternative to intrusive in-app ads. Without things like airpush and in-app ads, we wouldn't be able to have free apps at all, at least not free apps with any quality. The thing about Airpush is developers get paid, and it costs them absolutely nothing to implement. 100% of their earnings go to them. Here's a link to an interesting interview with the Airpush developers:

    Follow-up Interview with Airpush - Developers and Android Users Both Win

    I suspect that the same people who complain about Airpush also complain about rich media advertising within the app (it's pretty annoying in the free version of Angry Birds, and negatively affects framerate). Well, the advertising has to go SOMEWHERE.

    How is that new temple run game? A lot of reviews talk about how it's laggy, is it smooth on the maxx?

    I don't own a Maxx, I own a Bionic. And it seems butter smooth on my device. It could only be better on the Maxx, given the 200MHz speed bump. Of course, I haven't gotten too far into it, so maybe it gets laggy as you get into it more.

    I started a thread with this as the topic because the article and your post made me re-think the whole notion of these ads.

    I was using the GO launcher and installed all of the features it asked me to. I loved it, but I uninstalled it on 6/11, as I was led to believe that ICS was coming out the next day. I'll see if I still need it after ICS comes out, when it ever does.

    Thanks guys for the input. Apps are great but I refuse to use anything that could jack up my phone. Nothing is worth that. What do you mean FoxKat by "buggered up"? I don't want to find out the hard way, and since ICS is close, I MIGHT consider removing GO altogether and just returning to the stock launcher. Thanks for the info!

    I agree. Nothing is worth messing up the device, I just haven't seen any negative effects on the Four(4) phones running it in my HH.
    Phones are snappy, battery life is unaffected.
    If anyone is aware of problems though I certainly would want to know.
    Afterall, customizing is for the most part ONE of the reasons to get a Droid over other non-customizable smart phones (name not mentioned)
