    Control movies on your Xbox 360 with a remote app? Yeah, that's part of the "media" I'm talking about. Media is movies, videos, clips, music, pictures, slideshows, etc.

    To control a regular DVD player? As long as it supports Wifi then yes there are apps for that. XBMC, AirSync, and other apps can assist in remotely controlling that. And I also believe that streaming movies to a DVD player from your phone is possible with Wifi and 3G Hotspot and of course the DVD player having supported Wifi built into it.
    Funny how some people complain more than my 2 year old daughter does.

    In what manner are you trying to control movies? From remote on Droid to PC? Streaming from PC to Droid? Streaming from Droid to PC? Or other?

    I would recommend trying out doubleTwist Airsync or 2-player. You'll have to configure the settings properly in order to get it to work. Also must make sure you have Xbox 360 and it is hooked up to the router or Wifi-supported. I haven't tried anything yet controlling the media on my Xbox 360 since I'm too busy trying to edit those APK files and push to the next step so I can get closer to being able to create APKs from scratch or create themes.

    Lol, as long as I can get through my mess and figure everything out, especially in need of learning how to edit .9.png image files, xml editing, and such then I will try my best to roll out something and MAYBE just MAYBE try out making a "ultimate minimalist theme."

    MOTOROLA DROID 2
    #20
    Here are a few of my fave/most commonly used apps for DROID 2:

    Productivity

    Backup Assistant-finally you can back up all you address book phone and e-mail contacts so you can sync them back to your new device in case your smartphone suddenly goes kaput.

    GMail-easy and intuitive to use, send photos, videos, search for or tag mail items

    GMail Calendar-I finally gave in and transferred my calendar from Yahoo to G-mail. works well with reminders, recurring events, etc

    ColorNote-great for to-do lists, taking notes at lectures & meetings (even though non-tech savvy colleagues & mgrs may mistakenly think you are "texting" or "playing" on your smartphone when you are really attentively taking notes)

    Catch-another nifty note and media sharing app. I have to admit I have not used this one much yet, but it looks like it could be interesting and useful.

    DropBox-good remote storage site, particularly for shared projects that several people will be collaborating on; I do have some privacy concerns about it though, and would not entrust anything confidential or overly personal to this service

    Google Translate-good translation service that handles a wide variety of languages and even detects language and will pronounce it for you, assuming you have the text to voice app up to date

    Messaging-now with the DROID 2, you can link and check all your e-mail and social networking accts in one location-super convenient.

    Quick Office-easily open, edit and resend Word, Ppt and Excel files from you DROID the full version is worth the $15 if you access and edit a lot of Office files on the go

    Adobe Reader-makes accessing, attaching and re-sending pdfs from your DROID a snap

    Kindle e-reader-it's FREE, the e-books are cheap, and you can link it directly to your Amazon acct, which keeps track of which books you've purchased as well as your notes, highlights and bookmarks-save yourself $180 and get the app instead of the stand-alone reader

    Amazon-great app for the online store! I love how, with 2 clicks I can scan a barcode or photo of an item, add it to my wishlist and/or have it delivered to my door in 2-3 days. Very convenient.

    ConvertPad-quickly convert English to metric, etc. Nifty and practical.

    Entertainment & Media Rhapsody-The BEST streaming music service and app for the DROID out there-hands down. for $9.99 a month, I can listen to ALMOST ANY artist, album or song out there with very few exceptions. It also allows you to create playlists, as well as search by genre and popularity.

    Pandora-great free streaming music app. You enter the name of a song, artist or album, and it uses an algorithm to create a "station" of similar songs that it thinks you may like. You can hone it further by giving songs a thumbs up or thumbs down. The one drawback, of course, is that you cannot select specific songs on-demand. Pandora also does not show you the length or how far along a track is.

    Slacker-same concept as Pandora, Slacker is a little better in some respects and not quite as good in others. Slacker shows you the length of the track and how far along it is. It also seems to have more options for stations by genres, etc. The drawback, in my opinion, is that their algorithm for figuring out what you like based on the song you select and your "likes" vs "dislikes" ratings does not seem to be as intuitive as Pandora.

    Flixster Movies-great movie app! Watch trailers, find showtimes, reviews, and even get directions to local theaters all from this app. They link it to "Rotten Tomatoes" which combines both critic and viewer reviews to at least give you a good sense of whether others felt a particular movie was worth seeing or not.

    Shazam-this nifty app allows you to identify any song that is playing-just click on the app, let it listen to the song for 30 seconds or so, then it will pull up info about the song, who it is by, and even wishlist the album or download the mp3 if you like it.

    NY Times-great news app, gives you access to all the major stories currently featured in the NY Times; also has ample options for sharing stories with others either via FB, twitter, e-mail, etc.

    BBC News-this is one of the better news apps out there, and they provide an excellent, thoughtful perspective on international news. It will notify you of breaking news stories, which you can modify in the settings, if you like.

    ESPN Score Center-get scores, commentary and even some video clips from all of the major sports.

    Huffington Post-great, intuitive app featuring easily searchable stories from the unashamedly progressive news site

    Flash Player 10.1-finally allows DROID users to access Flash-based media and web content.

    Bluetooth on/off widget-very convenient for anyone who uses bluetooth accessories. I recently bought a set of Motorola bluetooth headphones, so that I can listen to my music, and also receive and make calls-all right from the headset.

    Twitter-a good app for those addicted to sharing and reading about life in 140 characters or less.

    More to come...
