    This has been mentioned on other forums, but I haven't really found an answer. Has anyone here noticed that the haptic feedback on their droid is inconsistent? Not that different keys/inputs have different feedback levels (which is obviously intentional), but that occasionally and seemingly for no reason a key like "return," "home," or even an on-screen numeric key will have an unusually powerful vibrate?

    I always chalked it up to a process that was getting stuck while running, hereby not allowing it to terminate the vibrate process properly, hence the 'extended' vibrate.

    Happens to me every once in a while. It makes me laugh.

    It happens to everyone. The most common term used to describe the behavior is "Angry feedback".

    I don't think anyone knows why. It's just one of those mysteries of life.

    Whenever I get the "Angry feedback" I always imagine my Droid is thinking really hard and is getting pissed at me for bothering it. ha.

    Its not called "Angry Feedback", I call it "Hectic Feedback". It fits the bill a little more, and sounds more like its original name.
