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

    Droid freezes/stops apps that are not in use to conserve resources. Some people like to use task killer apps, but those aren't necessary and can produce undesired results if you use them to close the wrong things. I used a couple different ones for a while, then stopped and noticed no significant change.

    The browser will save the last page you were on for some time after you exit it, but since it's not loading anything anymore, it won't use any resources. You can clear the cache and history if you'd like by pressing menu while in the browser and selecting settings.
