1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Google's gone ahead and uncorked the bubbly to celebrate the launch of Android 2.0 "Eclair" today ahead of Verizon's big reveal tomorrow, bundling its announcements into two very important sections: SDK support, meaning devs can go ahead and start targeting the new bits, and a comprehensive list of changes in the latest version. Here are the major changes us lay folk are going to care about:

    • Support for multiple Google and Exchange accounts
    • Third-party "sync adapters" allow apps to tie in to the phone's sync services
    • Quick contact menus for fast access to specific key pieces of contact information
    • Unified email inbox (yes!)
    • SMS and MMS search
    • Text message auto-delete after a user-defined thread size is reached
    • Significantly improved camera controls with white balance, macro, effects, and more
    • Improved keyboard layout, dictionary, and algorithm based on multi-touch support
    • Double-tap zoom in browser, support for HTML5
    • Bluetooth 2.1 support with addition of OPP and PBAP profiles
    • "Better" graphics hardware acceleration

    Needless to say, we're extremely excited about the changes Google's made here -- and on top of the Droid, we can only hope this action is coming to legacy devices on the double. We'll find out soon enough (hopefully). Check a video of 2.0 in action after the break!

    I'm just waiting to see what some of the developers think of the new OS. See what there thoughts are, good or bad.

    In all honesty; from a user perspective it hasn't grown on me. Ever heard the phrase "to your *** by way of your elbow?" Things are a mess; nothing is really linear, nor does it flow. Settings, control, and options couldn't be more perplexing or scattered.
