    This is a video by the guys at Droid Life. It is great. He goes really fast and delivers 25 really good tips in 10 minutes. I've had my droid since week 2 and I learned some good stuff watching this video:

    Good luck and enjoy.

    Cool video. I actually knew all but one. That was swiping the keyboard down. I did notice he went the long way about bookmarking a web page. You can do it with the bookmark icon right next to the url window.

    Embarrassed to say, but there were quite a few of the tips that I did not know. I was sort of blown away. Turns out I may be a "C" student!!

    I too learned the keyboard swipe and nothing more. Always used the back button for that task. :)

    I really liked it. I love the "machine gun" delivery - no waste of time. I have a lot of other, less socially acceptable, things to waste my time on.:)

    Thanks for providing it.

    Nice find, Bayou! And a nice presentation, kellex! I actually learned almost all of this from reading in the forum, but there were a couple that were new to me. Don't use Facebook so that was one.

    Facebook sync doesn't work for me.. Can't short or long press the image.. If I tap it goes to their page, if I long nothing.

    I don't want my phone to auto sync all the contacts into my phone, just the one I want.
