    Swipe the side of your palm across the screen from one side to the other.

    Screen shots on the Galaxy Nexus: Press power and volume down at the same time.

    Screen shots on the S3: Press power and home button (physical button) at the same time.

    Both Bunster and Quicksilver have it. I like the idea of the palm swipe, but it can be tricky to pull off without changing the screen.

    The trick to it is to hold the side of your hand on the screen then swipe across. It took me a while to get it right. I take accidental screen shots a lot with this phone.

    That palm swipe is too cool, now I know why I have all those screen shots. This phone really does do some neat stuff.

    Stupid,

    A screenshot can be used to show a developer comrade an error message, prove a high score on Angry Birds, or show us nerds how awesome your array of homescreens is (like the OP of almost every custom ROM thread). "Whoa dude, where do I get that theme?!"

    Warm Regards,

    Mr. Bunster
