    Now just put that in scrolling letters across the home page and 50% of the repeat questions would stop... Or would they?

    Now all we need to add to this mix of droided out opinions is a great "silicone" case for my "non-slider" Motorola Droid! LOL (I don't use the slide keyboard I prefer the on-screen one!) :icon_cool:

    Once AGAIN flash was NEVER going to be in the update in the first place. Flash is made by ADOBE and not Google, Motorola or Verizon so it will NOT be in an OTA update. When flash is available it will most likely be released to the Android Market for download.

    yo, i know it isnt all silicon BUT...i bought a case on eBay for about 6$ called "motorola droid hybrid case" its mad nice and its rubber/silicon. they have purple and pink ones now i guess but i just bought the black one. i like it a lot. i bought a regular silicone one and it was terrible because there's literally NO way to keep it on...especially if you keep it in your pocket.

    Live wallpapers affecting opening apps UPDATE.

    In the last few days I've reported noticing a difference in how apps open with and without live wallpapers.
    Without = smooth opening and closing.
    With = very slightly jerkiness, like a movie with a slow frame speed.

    Well today, I loaded Helix Launcher and set it up with 7 home screens. (Yes, just get it! You'll love it).

    I also loaded a Market-offered Galactic Core live wallpaper (nice).

    Just reporting Helix is every bit as fast with 7 screens as the Android default launcher, but the live wallpapers affect it about the same.

    Ok not trying to cause a riot, but has there been any word on the next update? Im not rushing it or anything, i just know most tech companies think ahead and usually have a team working on the next thing.

    Just some quick feedback on the voice inputs feature in 2.1: it edits the swear words to ####. Funny!
