    Hello, everyone:

    When I boot up my Droid and go to Settings, they show up in landscape mode, and I can't get them to change to portrait mode. My phone is the Droid.
    Is this a glitch?

    What's the accelerator do?

    Or in this case, our Droids. Think of it as a gyroscope and you won't be too far off.
