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

    I've had my eris for about 2 weeks now and had a touch pro before that (terrible phone) and never knew that HTC's mini usb port accepts a standard mini usb. Makes it a lot easier for me to have multiple chargers (my room, living room, car, office) instead of having to have the dumb proprietary cable. The site I read it on had comments saying it was common knowledge but I'd never read it or seen it on here.

    Just wanted to give you a headsup in case you didnt know

    That is a nice feature instead of making you use an expensive cable only they make like other companies do.

    I know right, I thought I was the only one to get excited about this too lol, but ya I just use a $3 dollar car charger I bought for my old XV6900 (HTC Touch) instead of getting the $30 dollar Verizon one.

    USB cables are cheap at monoprice.com. I got 7 USB cables (of different types) for <$15 with shipping. I carry a short microUSB with me, so the Droid can recharge from my laptop anytime.
