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

    It will be very annoying and iPhone-ish (=P) if I am streaming something online using the media player and can't check SMS or view another page on the Browser.

    Yes, streaming music works just fine with other apps running. Droid multitasks!

    On Droid, there are multiple free apps to stream music. You can use the browser and text while streaming music through one of these apps. You can also have multiple browser windows open simultaneously:icon_ banana:.

    So if I listen to stations through Moodio.fm, I can use one of those apps to play it, while freeing up the rest of my phone? Sounds great! What is the name of one of those apps?

    Just get the i music app. It streams music, and you can download music.

    I prefer Internet stations from Shoutcast, dezymond =P But I do have Pandora, so it's good to know that won't conflict with the Browser. I'll look into IMusic

    After digging some more on Google, I found a good app called "StreamFurious" and it uses Shoutcast playlists. AMAZING app. Hope this helps anyone else that was looking for the same thing I was.

    Or you can use Orb and stream your own music collection from your home pc. Works great and runs in a browser window in the background while I do other stuff.
