Recommended live wallpaper!

I recently came across this really cool live wallpaper called Jumpgate free. It has an Android wearing a jetpack flying through space dodging meteors, it's very, very cool! ! !

Brand new official CNN Android app. . .

If I'm correct I believe it came out yesterday,...but I didn't d/l it til today.

Thus far, I am kinda dissapointed. The read articles and the videos are mixed in with each other, I think they should be seperated. As they are in the FOX NEWS app, there is a tab for Articles, and a tab Videos.

Also, it would have been nice if there was a tab for Shows. Such as the one with Ellioyt Spitzer. American Morning. Their just random videos.

Of course I will keep the app, right along sided the, and FOX NEWS apps, for a variety of news and so on.

Well, it's just the beginning, likely the app will get updated and so on.

I am kinda curious how the offical CNN Android app compares to the one they made for the Iphone.

If no 4G: TB vs Inc2

I am looking into upgrading my BBStorm with VZW. IF you take the 4g out of the equation AND take the 4.3" vs 4" screen size out of the equation: How do the phones compare?

I am leaning torward the Inc2 b/c I don't really care for the 4G nor the screen (heck, I may even prefer the larger screen). The thing is that it seems now you can get a TB CHEAPER than the DInc2! Any reason to pick one vs the other??

WinAmp Beta

I'm not sure when it was released, but i just picked up the beta version of WinAmp on my R2-D2 droid yesterday. It is much more user friendly than the stock music player. Some neat things that it does (other than a better user interface) is it Strobs with, a widget that shows album art, will wirelessly sync to your winamp on your computer, a SHOUTcast search feature. It also says that it will sync with iTunes, but i have no way of verifying that since i don't use iTunes.

Definately a step in the right direction for media players on the Android systems though. I've been quite impressed. I'd like to see an EQ though

General Rooting Thread

First off, I noticed that there weren't many universal rooting threads so i figured I would create one.

Second, I am a noobie. How exactly does it all work?

My HTC MyTouch 3G is missing wi-fi as a feature!

I just bought a new unlocked HTC MyTouch 3G from Newegg this past President's Day weekend,

"contract free".

I intended to just use my existing T-Mobile prepaid account and just enjoy the phone using

wi-fi. The problem is, I cannot log into Google using the phone b/c I don't even see wi-fi as

an option. One of the big reasons I bought this phone was to use wi-fi to get my apps. I

don't need 3G service.

Here's some screenshots: ... » ... » ... »

So what can I do?

Hancent Question (Hope this is the correct forum)

Alright, so I appologize first off if this is being posted in the wrong forum...I have Handcent SMS installed on my Vibrant. Approximately a month ago, whenever I get a message, I get whichever message notification I have set up (either default or personalized for the contact) and then I also get some white envelope icon. Now, I'm pretty Android savvy so I know it's not the default system messaging notification; that one not only looks different but has been turned off since I installed alternate SMS apps. It has be seriously perplexed, the worst part is, it's also happening on my wife's Cliq and our notification settings are completely different! I have friends that use Handcent and we seem to be the only ones I know with that issue. Any in...
