    When I try to use the Droid while connected to the computer through the USB (not mounted), the touchscreen is acting up. For example I press the home button and it thinks I pressed something on the screen instead. I was wondering if anyone else ran into this problem and what might cause it (maybe some malfunctioning app?). It gets back to normal as soon as I unplug it.

    This is the first problem it's caused me. I love this phone! :D

    Yes, I saw exactly this behavior! I will say, after I ordered and setup the Dock, I didn’t see this behavior again. I have to wonder if its a power issue. Both the USB and Dock charge the phone no question. But with just USB cable in a powered hub, I observed exactly the behavior you describe.

    I have the same problem when I plug my phone in to a cheap chinese charger. I'm guessing it's a voltage problem. It works fine for me when plugged in to any other charger. Try plugging your phone in to another computer and see if it works.
