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

    Anyone know of a way to stop the physical Home key on the Samsung Galaxy S 3 from waking the phone? I find that I accidentally hit the Home key and wake the phone when I put it in my pocket. I'd prefer to only have the Power key wake the phone. Have seen a post on how to accomplish this if the device has been rooted but I don't want to risk that since it's new and still under warranty.

    Thanks for any helpful suggestions!

    I don't know of any options or apps off the top of my head, but I don't have an S3. This problem occurs with many phones though.
