    ok ..first, is this webpage not loading all the way for anyone else?

    2nd..was wondering how practical it would or wouldnt be, or even if could be done, for someone to make an unobtrusive snap on magnifying screen for the droid, especially when using maps or, nav, something you could snap onto the front of your droid to make the screen bigger. I remember they used to make them for tvs and stuff along time ago..

    You can make the screen bigger by double tapping on it. If you are rooted you will have pinch and zoom and can expand the screen that way. I don't know any other way to answer your question, I suppose it's feasible it could be done.

    I'm on a computer, the web page is working fine for me.

    What you are talking about is a fresnel lens.

    I'm sure if you search around the web you'll be able to find one. And the flexible ones are cool because you can trim them down to a size you want.

    It just might be what you are looking for.

    This has happened to me on a couple of occasions, clear your browser cache and refresh the page and it should come back.
