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

    Hello all. I am proud to say that I will be picking up my Droid X tomorrow and tossing my Blackberry in the trash (ok, not really).

    I am definitely excited to be joining the Droid community. I have heard nothing but praise. I have had enough of the Blackberry - it sure isn't the phone for me - and I am ready to move on to bigger and better things!

    Just wanted to do a quick intro and say that I'm glad I made the switch and hope to contribute to this site as much as possible.

    Also, I had a quick question. I understand the X will be receiving the Froyo 2.2 update sooner or later, and that it has the ability to play Flash...

    Well I currently reside in Los Angeles and I am a die-hard Lakers fan. I will be going to school in Northern California in the spring semester. I wanted to ask if it is possible to view live streams for games? i.e. atdhe, justin.tv, etc.

    Thanks again everyone, and once again I am proud to be here.

    :welcome:

    yes when 2.2 is rolled out it will have flash with it. if you can find a website that streams it, it will work on the DX (although a few sites seem to block it, like Hulu)

    Are there any apps/games/etc. that you recommend for a College student or just in general?

    Thank you again all. After a bit of confusion and delay from Verizon, I was able to pick up my Droid X earlier today and I am in love with it.

    Does anyone recommend any cool applications that I should download? Please let me know. Thanks!
