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

    So..I had an odd experience today.

    I get a call from one of my employees, Marti. It comes up Martin. So, I go and check my contacts and "Marti" is not listed but when I "edit" Martin, both Marti and Martin's numbers come up.

    So, I figure it was just a glitch in my Gmail contacts.

    Nope. They are both listed there. But for some reason, Droid decided they were the same person. It is a simple fix and nothing to cry about but interesting, nonetheless.

    I think it's actually happens when Google syncs to the phone. Mine combined several contacts when it synced. And like you I had to go back in and fix it. I think there's an option somewhere not to combine like names. It was particularly a pain that backup assistant. Didn't include last names when it saved to csv file.
