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

    Is there any way that my Motorola Droid can be used as a second monitor for my PC?

    3.7" second monitor? o_O I don't know how, but then again I don't know why you'd want to be squinting at a 3.7" screen >_>

    As a monitor? Not exactly.

    However, you can set up a VNC server on your PC and use your Droid as a VNC client in "read only" mode. This would display your monitors output on your Droid without interfering with the mouse/keyboard of the PC. The connection needs to be over wifi, preferably on your home network. But there would be a little lag though.

    TightVNC (VNC server) works well on Windoze and the Android Market has tons of VNC clients to choose from.

    LOL Thanks for questioning why I would want to be squinting at a screen that small. But remember there is a magnifier with windows ;-). I want it because then I can see map online or a guide of a game I'm playing without having to Alt+Tab every time. I would love the Logitech G19 keyboard but that's to f'ing expensive.
