    Any ideas why Google decided to make the power widget have a 2-way toggle for screen brightness? It just doesn't make sense to use a 2-way GUI element to control a 3-way function. It looks like it was functionality hacked in by someone after the fact.

    You can set it to auto launch an app, too. It auto launches Pandora, but it doesn't always work right.

    You can set it to launch an app, how? And mine has 3 levels of brightness, too. Are we talking about the same thing? That 4x1 widget with 5 toggles on it, that turn green at the bottom when you toggle one on...

    Wow, I just totallly mixed this thread up with another one.

    What I mean is, the power control widget is a 2-way indicator. It tells you if something is on or off. The brightness control is 3-way, dim, mid, bright. Why didn't they make the widget indicate 3 different settings to mirror what it's actually doing? In the bright sun, I can't tell if it's at mid or bright.
