    I haven't seen this anywhere, but after downloading and installing it earlier today I was playing around and noticed that it allows you to sign into the Market with any of the Google accounts you have sync'd up with your phone. Just thought I would throw that out there since I know a lot of people have asked about merging Market accounts before, or at the very least, moving the apps from one account to the other, and now there is a way to access everything at once. Pretty nifty.

    And now that I think about it, kind of sketchy at the same time. Whats to stop you from buying an expensive app on one phone, syncing your Google account to your wife's and downloading it for free on there while your account info is only used as a placeholder on the system. (i.e. only there for the market, no Gmail sync or anything like that...)
