    I actually heard a commercial for the HTC hero (no name cell phone store) as the latest top of the line cell phone running Android... I laughed so hard.

    Me personally, I would buy land, build a home, and put the rest away to be paid out a little at a time each month so that I can live completely comfortably for the rest of my life... probably about 1 million/year.

    Well if it's still current maybe I'll save my money for a while and update when something better comes along.

    Just 1m/pa? Interest alone would be at least 3times that(assuming you bank a round 100m)

    I'd probably do similar to you, a few houses, a bunch of cars, some toys and see the world, which would leave me with enough capital to live on the interest in real luxury

    I just wish that it was enough to allow me to do that, but what I want, money can't buy.

    I would build a home. Perhaps a million SQ foot and a nice sofa recliner.

    I'm using the Droid X right now. I'm waiting for the Targa to upgrade at the end of this year. I did start on the Eris though, which was basically a Verizon Hero.

    Buy an island, preferable somewhere that would allow me to secede from whatever it's currently bound to for a few million.

    Build super awesome home/bunker, name it Castle Bomfinstien.

    My first law would be that if Bono steps foot onto my country, he shall be executed.

    Go to Antarctica.

    Get pilot's license.

    Buy Ferrari 250 GTO.

    Die happy.

    I'd give about 181M to charities and churches - mostly Christian childrens homes in third world countries.

    With my 9M left over I'd get a big home with some land around it. I'd travel with my family - show my kids Europe when they are studying history, that kind of thing. A nice BMW for getting around town, an Aston Martin DB9 for good weather, a Harley for really good weather. I'd get some dogs, maybe rescue a horse or two.

    I'd get my in-laws a nice house on the beach that they could live in and that we could visit.
