    Anyone else in? What is the incredible lure? Honestly, I think this is the least useful addition and could probably name 50 more essential features I'd love for them to add into the OS.

    I use the green smoke adjusted to blue. Looks sharp in SG 5.0 but that's all it does...look smart. It's eye candy and nothing more, as are a lot of the themes. They let you customize the looks of your phone sort of like picking a blue paint job vs red on your car. The colors and themes add zero functionality unless they let you see something easier/faster.

    however..Droid Does. List half of the 50 features you wish you had and I bet some folks will come along and post some apps that do what you are looking for for at least half of those.

    1. Search the entire phone, including k-9 email (aurora is the only thing close)

    2. An MP3 player with a graphic EQ or any EQ.

    3. An MP3 player that responds properly to the headphone buttons that many have, e.g. like the iphone, for skip, rewind, stop (it's a total mess on the droid)

    4. Ability to reset the shortkeys (doesn't work properly yet on the droid, dedicated phone button lags) and also better not to have to use that second key to press (the search key) in conjunction with another key.

    5. Standard dock where you can put links to common items on it (phone, settings, etc.) Yes, there are home screens but this should be unnecessary and part of the OS.

    5a. If you don't like that one, how about some decent camera software? Not sure whose fault this is but the Droid (not sure of all Android devices) camera BLOWS.

    6. Ability to snooze some but not just all alarms in alerts

    7. Ability to set alerts to assigned colors (right now it's a big conflicted mess)

    8. Ability to answer the phone without that awful swipe, perhaps by hitting a hardware button... or something easier.

    9. RELIABLE OUTLOOK SYNC FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!!!!

    10. A client that backs up the entire phone's data onto your hard drive automatically.

    That's just a top 10 list off the top of my head!

    Because its original and no other mobile phone has it. Its fun to interact with and show off, while not draining the battery

    I have it installed because I can but I still intend to go back to stock when 2.1 is officially released. I do agree with the OP, I could live without it.

    I didn't think I'd care much for live wallpapers until I rooted and messed around with them. I like squashing roaches and letting the ladybugs crawl away.

    "I could care less" means that you do in fact care. However, if you "couldn't care less", it means that you care so very little, that there is no possible way you could reduce the amount you care.

    I must be looking in the wrong place. I have one where bugs crawl around but none I can squish. I must be missing some somehow.

    The live wallpapers are ok, but since I O.C. at 1100 Ghz, sometimes the phone gets hot so I go back to a stock wallpaper.

    I would just sell the phone. Because if you cant see a use in it then its not for you.

    I didn't know there was a "use" for Live walls.

    You mean over 4000 issues? Enhancement requests also are in that list, not just bugs.
