Well I am totally certain that I don't have a Droid, an Android, or even a Real Doll.

Google has nothing to do with the name "Droid".

Ah, that's right, "Droid" is licensed to Verizon exclusively by LucasFilms. Which happens to be what my phone is...so I'm official! Yay! But I agree the semantics of this issue is irritating.

It is getting slightly annoying using the touch keys, mainly due to my own dexterity.

You're in luck. Khim sells his body on occasion, and that would cover all those issues.

Huh. I never thought about it like that. Most whores do I guess. If you bought it would be sexual slavery not prostitution.

I was a RoadWhore. I went into semi-retirement last week. Now, my benefactor is Nuclear Power. And, she is a cruel mistress.

Better Civvy Nuke than Navy Nuke, I'm assuming.

Maybe not. Maybe Khim is just a glutton for punishment.

Well, from all the stories you guys trade, I can't imagine anything worse than Navy Nuke life. I'd rather be one of those Ethiopean kids with the distended bellies.

Oh, shut up:

Verizon article above wrote:
At 1.5 pounds, my iPad is on the heavy side to hold like a book for extended periods-and the 3G version is a tenth of an ounce heavier.

I gave my iPhone to my best friend. I am back to using a phone just as a phone... on Edge only!

Dell currently has some really good deals on Motorola products (including droid) with 2 year service agreements. I'm guessing they are trying to thin out their inventory before the next wave of smart phones and smart-pads hit the shelves later this year. http://mobility.dell.com/mobile/?r=dellmobility&refcode1=DMS_0518_000_EMAIL

as the Large Melon (aka Madhatte) once told me, "A phone is a phone; not a calculator, not a GPS, not a web surfer." electronics should only be used for one purpose. if i want another purpose, get another machine.

That's fine for luddites and cro-mags. I like Warhammer 40,000 and I like Steampunk, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Froyo is looking pretty hot.

http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/20/android-2-2-froyo-officially-announced/

JIT, WiFi hotspot, and a bunch of other goodies. The new push service sounds interesting to say the least.

Yah, the browser is almost 50% faster!

I wonder if the motorola droid will even get the update. Maybe they will only release it for the nexus one and incredible since they have the 1ghz processors.

If it does it will probably be like 3-6 months after release.

The droid has a different processor architecture, so the clock speed isn't necessarily relevant.

I thought I read a review at one point in time saying the Nexus One speed wise wasn't much different than the Droid.

Well still it is going to be a long wait to 2.2 for the motorola droid.

If it even gets it.
