    Hey guys.

    I got my new Droid yesterday, and from what I can tell so far, it's great. However, I have some questions, some of which my old iPhone had the answer to, but I'm sure the Droid can handle once I figure it out...

    1) That clock widget. I want that clock. The HTC Hero has it, and I put it on my iPhone as well: the white analog clock that flipped the numbers like an old alarm clock. I searched everywhere, any ideas where I can find it?

    2) Music. I got most of my music onto the Droid, but is there any way to sync my entire iTunes library (playlists and all) to the Droid?

    3) Partly going with the first question, a weather widget. I flipped through the majority of the weather apps, I couldn't find a nice widget to display on my home screen. Suggestions?

    That's it for now. If I can think of anything else, I may post back here, but in the mean time, thanks!

    A: Retro flip clock or Weather Widgets has one.

    2) Music. I got most of my music onto the Droid, but is there any way to sync my entire iTunes library (playlists and all) to the Droid?

    A: As far as I know, no. There is no method yet.

    3) Partly going with the first question, a weather widget. I flipped through the majority of the weather apps, I couldn't find a nice widget to display on my home screen. Suggestions?

    A: your in luck Weather Widgets , does this too.

    For the music, doubletwist will sync your whole itunes library, playlists and all. Try it out, it's alot easier than dragging and dropping.

    Thanks for the answers so far guys! However, one more arose from the answers...

    How do I activate the widget after I download it?

    As far as music, motorola has a program to download on your pc that will transfer all itunes music and playlists as well as photos from you pc and other stuff. Motorola Media Link. I use it, it's decent.

    +1 on this; it makes song management incredibly easy
