    As the OP stated, "Cut and Paste Mining operations to be Sorted." All those are just what he/she grabbed from other posts and included them in the list and has yet to go through and sort them out.

    Thanks again for the help on the thread folks

    I tried the 2x battery app and it did not seem to work? My bat life seemed a bit shorter?

    uhm. did you properly configured the app? Make sure you check the option to "don't enable the connection" on the *enable interval* setting.

    Hmm, I don't recall exactly, I spent some time going through it and what not. After a couple of days I was getting about the same battery life and I noticed it took longer to do just about everything because it seem to take a while to turn Wifi/BT/4g back on. Even making a call took longer, it was faster just to turn those things on and off manually. I was wondering why no one else had the same complaints, so I turned it off and figured I would go back and give it another wack down the road.

    Right now I am having a good time messing with Hey Tell, for some reason it is fun to harass your friends with push to talk style messages :)

    I recommend Meteor Shower Calendar and Skyeye for anyone who like to watch falling stars/meteor showers and what not.

    The two program work together nicely. once you have them installed, you can open Meteor Calendar and it will tell you what Meteor showers are current, when they start, peak and end. you can then pick one you would like to check out and then you can click through to Skyeye and skyeye which will point you in the right direction so you can look for them falling rocks. They are both free on android market.
