    I got the new Market too. I don't think you're going to be able to avoid it forever. It's a learning thing and I'm somewhat getting used to it. - MarkC

    Market looks the same to me, I'm running version 2.3.6 - Is this update region specific?

    Looks like a regional rollout to me. My phone got it but my wife's hasn't yet. I've seen it on other forums like this post on the Motorola Droid 3 forum: https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/55135?tstart=0

    Don't think it's OS specific since the D3 has Gingerbread and the Revo doesn't yet.

    I like the new market just fine. the new movie rental function and Google "Videos" app look pretty cool. I'm trying my first movie rental today. purchased the rental but will watch later.

    Google Video Rentals and the Videos App work pretty good. If you are going to plan on watching them through HDMI I would suggest using a different service though. Phone through HDMI to your TV doesn't look the best since they are really only sending you a big enough (high quality) movie file to look great on a small phone screen. I'm guessing Google may have this service on Google TV and the quality would be meant for a larger screen. I won't use this service often, but possibly while traveling only with my phone.

    I'm not half so agitated by the layout as I am by the fact that it went and linked every email address on my phone to my apps. I run three Google Calendars off this phone, and now I'm getting notices for every dang one of them when there's an update to the apps.

    Did anyone ask for this? No. Is anyone so dumb as to really need three notifications for the same software to be sent to the same device? God I hope not!

    I also don't like how app searches now return books and movies. I've never in my life downloaded a book or a movie from the app store and I have zero intention of ever doing so. My ebooks are specifically purchased to be non-device specific, because I read on both a kindle (.AZW format) and on my phone using Moon+ (ePub). I'm not buying some proprietary crap from these buffoons.

    I also have to say that allowing 1200 character app reviews from a computer, and only 160 character reviews from a phone is equally dumb, but if we're going to frost this cake of stupid, it's that the app market won't let me review an app I just deleted from my phone because it didn't work. You have to physically have the app still on your phone in order to review it from that phone. What makes this so dumb is that you can log into your account and review ANYTHING from a computer.

    Between the overpriced and buggy HTC Sensation that doesn't even allow bluetooth file transfer or printing (even though it claims to do so-- HTC never made Win7 drivers, so the device will "Pair" but not "connect."), and the botch job of just about everything Google associated with android (Calendars don't display properly, apps like Google music are forced onto the user, the app market is a gigantic fail), there is no part of the Android system from start to finish that is EVER going to "kill" the iPhone.

    So... yeah. I can't stand Apple, but Google is doing everything in their power to make me legitimately HATE Android.

    I don't mind the new layout but I hate that it takes several minutes for it to load now. I usually lose interest long before the page ever loads.
