    So im sure like most of you guys/gals you hate dust on your screen so you either blow it off or lightly wipe it off. so i blew some of the dust off with my mouth yesterday and all of sudden the menu comes up. im like WTF, i then blow some more off and the search box opens. come to find out (on my phone atleast) those touch buttons are so sensitive that blowing on them will cause actions. when i had my N1 they were not nearly sensitive enough.

    It's actually likely the vapor from your hreath, since it works on the capacity of it.

    Well, I won't go as far saying that my EVO is breath activated, but I will agree that I find the touch to be way to sensitive. I find that I have to handle the phone very carefully or I activate one of the apps. I am constantly launching the frickin' camera without knowing it. I think I'm going to create a custom desktop that has no app icons on the home screen.

    I've never seen it react to breath but I have seen it switch screens and act funny when in the sun or maybe just the heat or the combination of both. I've gotten in the car after work and the car has been baking in the sun for hours and laid the phone on my lap and noticed it shift to the right or left when I moved my leg.

    Hope you don't leave your phone in the car, that is a good way to ruin your battery.

    for anyone reading, the OP experienced how moisture in your breath can make enough resistance to get the capacitance buttons to recognize it as a command. this is not anything new or groundbreaking. read PoundSands link on the subject.
