    I use the app because it always felt more light-weight than pulling up a browser to perform a search. And light-weight is a necessity for anything I try to do on my OG Droid nowadays ;)

    Since you can't currently re-claim the space for widgets, my main complaint is its visibility. I don't get why the removed the search button, much less obtrusive and very useful for long press actions and the like.

    Yep, that is correct. I'm sure it'll come eventually though.

    Ironic considering how long the lines in the stores can be while just waiting for tech support or a sales rep. ;)

    It's how he got the launcher to auto-rotate based on orientation.

    What if they were stupid enough to stick with a blackberry too long and are now stuck keeping it until the Nexus finally is released? LOL

    I actually ended up dropping my Blackberry in the water a few months back and was without a phone. Sis upgraded to a iphone 4 and gave me her old Blackberry. I'm stuck with the slow, ancient technology that RIM uses until Verizon releases the Nexus. Come on Verizon, end my suffering, lol.
