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

    How do I disable the search soft key's long press bringing up voice search? I have a Samsung Fascinate and it brings up Bing Voice search. I saw some .apks that replace it with google search - but then the long press brings up Google Voice search. I don't want long press bringing up any search, so I can use the powerstrip app.

    You should be able to do that ; don't you get the dialog box asking which app you want to launch with the box to check for default app?

    I do not, never have. I don't know why. I had that offer on the droid.
