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 find that when I'm using the browser, it takes a while for websites to come up. After about five seconds, my screen goes dark. Questions:

    1. Is there some setting that I can change to keep this from happening so soon?

    2. Is there an easy way to get the screen back when this happens? I generally resort to turning the phone back on, but there must be an easier way.

    1) There are options under Settings > Display, that let you change the screen timeout. Some people also use an app called Screebl to do stuff like this.

    2) I dont follow. Turn on? Or unlock? If it's the latter, then refer to #1, if it's the former, then you've got an odd software issue.

    Screebl is the app of the day it seems.
