Default Droid update!!

You heard it right, update just released by motorola/verizon it fixes the camera, puts in a new lock and sound on/off screen, changes the music controller widget, and more.

edit: portrait mode lock fixed, just a small little glitch on my part

there is a whole lot of apps i havent even been able too look at them all. and the best thing is most of the apps are free. actually theres a whole lot of free apps i cant even begin to think a number. but yes its growing. i think the best app of all is the gps tracker. tracks my cell phone, and can be activated remotely via sms message. pretty handy if your phone gets stolen. the apps that you have to pay for are also pretty large in number and they work great.

I kind of liked the arc to unlock, now it's a straight movement like "the other guys".

Wonder if I can get that changed back.

On the plus side, it hasn't locked up or anything, no buggy actions like I sort of expected with new software.

Shows me that VZW does a better job at their S/w regression testing than other folks.

Droid is based on Giggle isn't it?

I refuse to use Giggle, they are more anti than I can stand. Conservative gun owners need not apply.

So I take it you use a CB radio to communicate?

Your post has nothing to do with what I said.

That's your choice.

If you can live with their suppression of information and their dealings with communist countries, have at it.
