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

    When I'm viewing a Web page, I'd like to be able to select text, then paste it into an email -- or whatever. When I go to Menu, then More, my Droid tells me that Select text is Menu+e. How do I enter Menu+e (or Menu+f, etc.)? I don't know how to make letter alternatives come up with the Menu key.

    Thanks.

    You need to use the keyboard. You press menu and then the key on the keyboard and it brings up the action you want to complete.

    Thanks -- got it to go pink and say "text copied to clipboard"

    But then how do I paste it into, say, an email message? I go home, then open gmail, then go to the body of the message, and I don't see any option allowing me to paste that elusive pink text.
