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

    We just got test results from DisplayMate which shows the Droid's gallery or image viewer being downgraded to 16-bit after the 2.1 update...

    I think it was probably intentional on Motorola's part because they were concerned about the performance due to all the apps that are being written to be memory intensive. 16bit verses 24bit is a definite drop in memory use if I am right. I don't know anything about the coding side of this subject but is their any way BD can change the code to reverse this in his ROM's or has he already?:icon_eek:

    If this is news, wouldn't that suggest that the drop to 16 bits isn't noticeable? I had no idea until I read the article. I doubt anyone could distinguish the difference if they were unaware of the revision.
