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

    Ok so I am driving to a restaurant tonight locally and a bridge near me is closed/backed up due to an accident. I am about to get on line anyway to to wait to cross when I realized in the nick of time that I could flip on the navigation and a new route and circumvent the bridge. Thats exactly what I did and the Droid GPS was incredible.

    Thats is one of many reasons why my Droid rocks!

    Whats yours?

    My droid rocks because:

    It replaced a Garmin GPS and a Sirius satellite receiver that were both hanging from my windshield. Even after the addition of the $30 data plan I'm coming out ahead because I reduced my TXT plan (use Twitdroid instead of TXT for Twitter) and cancelled my Sirius radio subscription.

    Because, it "just does". :)

    1.) GPS
    2.) Turn-by-turn directions.
    3.) All e-mail accounts in one spot.
    4.) Speed.
    5.) Call clarity / network.
    6.) Apps I actually need and use.
    7.) Great community and support.

    5. A dozen or so barcode thingy's on my key ring

    This amazing device attracts people. Almost every time I've used my Droid in public someone notices and asks to take a closer look

    google maps! A Lot of freeway construction around my area, I just fire up gmaps with the traffic overlay saves me a lot of time on the road.

    Because I no longer have to get up from playing a video game to look up a cheat code, map, or strategy guide. I simply pull out my phone, hit voice search, and keep on playing.

    I can also reset my fantasy lineup five minutes before gametime when I forget to do so before I leave the house.

    I also use it at work all the time (I work at a video store). People ask stuff like "what was that baseball movie with Kevin Costner?" I hit voice search, say "baseball movie Kevin Costner," and reply with "did you mean Field of Dreams or For the Love of the Game?"

    Love this phone.

    One more:
    Because I'm a gadget whore, that's why.

    All great stuff :) Thing does rock! I am going to look into Phonemypc now. What does that let you do? Dial into your pc from the Droid and use anything on the PC? Could you stream videos on the PC to the Droid? Can you open any application on the pc and use it on the Droid? Is that the gist?

    thanks
