    So I now find myself, as I'm riding the T (for those of you not from Boston, the train), eyeballing other people's phones. This is not done out of a sense of smugness (honestly!) but rather to scope others out might have also taken the leap and bought a Droid.

    I know there are at least two Phandroid members from Boston, so I always wonder. Maybe we should get a secret handshake?!?

    If you're out there- say hello! :p

    I definitely don't miss riding the T. Used to live in Quincy and ride up to Boston to go to the bars. The bus ride home was a pain. I heard they even canceled the after hours buses.

    I remember seeing an app where you could basically flick the phone and it would send your contact details to a receiving phone. (Can't remember what the app was called though.) So maybe you get that app, and wander around flicking your Droid until you get a 'hit' :)

    I guess the real world, non-tech equivalent would be to walk around shouting "be my friend, be my friend" :)

    There is an app called Follow Me that let's people know where you are. I haven't used it yet, but it uses the GPS to see your location. I think you need to allow people to see you, but that may be one way to see where another DROID user is.

    Actually, it's more like I'm hoping that I'm not they only one in Boston as unheathily obsessed with the Droid. OCD loves company.

    Why don't you guys sign up for that service that shows where you are on the maps, maybe create a group name and have common prefix or something. That way when you check the map, and fellow DROID member is near, you can fire off a, "DROOOIIIIIIDDDDD"...the tech equivalent of throwin' up a gang sign.


    Ps. - VW enthusiasts do the same by flashing a "V" hand signal...just lettin you guys know you wouldn't be the only ones.


    Even better, maybe someone can write an app that auto starts the "DROOOOIIIIIDDD" sound when (2) DROIDs are in close proximity.

    Pretty funny. Could be like the radar echo: "DRIOOOOD... drooooid" getting faster and faster as you get closer. Angels and hallelujahs when you join as one :)

    You just have to be careful...you know what happens when too many DROIDs come assemble in one place:

    I guess you could always add local users to Google Latitude. None of my friends use it yet, interested to see how it works.

    I agree that someone needs to create an app that automatically looks for Droids that are close to you. I'm also looking for people near me that are obsessed with the Droid like I am.

    You're right: this thread is WAAAY dumber than your obviously clever and well thought out response to it.

    Why bother responding if you have nothing positive to add?

    hahah i live in NYC and i do the same thing, check out other ppl's phones to see if they have the same phone. so far though, i haven't seen any other person with the droid on the bus or the train. weird.
