    Under settings > location & security settings, there's 3 check boxes for location...1) Use wireless networks, 2) use gps satellites, and 3) enable assisted gps.

    Does anyone know what 3) is or does? Is it something to make gps more accurate?

    I usually run with 1 and 2 enabled. Turned 3 on today and saw a noticeable battery drain but couldn't see what it actually does.

    Whew! Read and reread the article(s) and could only think of Arthur Clarke's third law of prediction:

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

    Guess we have arrived.

    Makes my Droid X's temp soar to 104 and getts very hot on the backside at first when I would enable it not knowing what is really did. I know now to keep it off. :p
