21:26 androidfreak_ I want my MOTOACTV NOW! :D Can't wait!
21:26 dproldan heh,  it's  a beast
21:26 androidfreak_ Haha thats AWSOME!
21:26 dproldan you can see my display is broken  :-(
21:27 dproldan only showing every other line
21:27 androidfreak_ yeah, I was wondering about that... thought it could be the camera?
21:27 androidfreak_ yeah it looks interlaced
21:27 androidfreak_ What heppened?
21:27 androidfreak_ (happened)
21:28 dproldan nah,  I opened it and broke a line in the glass,  it was a very soft touch,  but I could feel it
21:28 androidfreak_ ouch
21:28 androidfreak_ :-(
21:28 dproldan getting another one!
21:28 androidfreak_ Then I  won't open mine when I get it...
21:28 androidfreak_ hehe, cool
21:28 androidfreak_ That means you really like it!
21:29 dproldan no, please,  if you want yo see it inside:  https://picasaweb.google.com/1​11067582235558199450/MotoACTV
21:30 androidfreak_ Woooo!!!
21:31 androidfreak_ Cool! I love taking stuff apart..
21:32 androidfreak_ Although after your story about the broken screen I'm a little anxious. I wont take mine apart.. I think it could affect the water resistance as well
21:34 dproldan yeah,  I'm used to open stuff like this.   never broke anything,  but this display,  just a small touch on that foam you see in the pics,  and I felt a crack
21:35 dproldan luckily,  with the interlaced effect it's still usable
21:37 androidfreak_ cool
21:37 androidfreak_ then you have a spare one to experiment on
21:39 dproldan that's right
21:42 androidfreak_ :)
21:42 androidfreak_ I'm just having fun reading about everybody elses modding and hacking
21:42 androidfreak_ I'm such a geek
21:42 androidfreak_ :p
21:47 dproldan been in your situation  :-)   reading everything possible before receiving the gadget
21:47 AndroidFreak hehe...
21:48 dproldan these moto suckers,   when are they going to release in Europe?
21:48 AndroidFreak Dunno.. I had to order from the US...
21:48 AndroidFreak really hard to find someone who ships it
21:48 AndroidFreak I had to pay 45USD for the wrist band only
21:49 dproldan yep,  you got it from that shop in Florida?
21:50 AndroidFreak no.. which one?
21:50 AndroidFreak I used ebay
21:52 CEnnis91 joined #motoactv
21:52 dproldan yes,  ebay
21:55 AndroidFreak I'm just reading though the huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge thread...
21:56 AndroidFreak I'm only at page 60 now
21:56 AndroidFreak been reading for three days
21:56 dproldan heh,   there's some good info buried in there
21:56 AndroidFreak I try to pick out the most important posts and repost them with link to original post at the motoactvforum
21:56 ds2 anyone know of a setting for android to kill an app as soon as it looses focus?
21:57 AndroidFreak ds2: no sorry, :/
21:57 AndroidFreak damnit, I have to go to bed... owrk in the morning. :(
21:59 dproldan ds2: you can reduce the memory allocated for programs that lose focus,  that's in init.paltform.rc  IIRC
22:00 dproldan *platform
22:00 ds2 dproldan: the problem is I suspect one program is being poorly behaved and burning the battery even though it is no longer in focus
22:00 ds2 had the battery run flat in about 6 hours last Friday
22:01 ds2 mostly that is ad related
22:02 dproldan yes,  you can play with those settings,  there are several slots,  each one allocates RAM for each kind of program,  you could tweak the "standard programs" space to only allow one program to be running,  maybe
22:02 ds2 that is round about
22:03 ds2 I'll consider that as a last resort
22:03 ds2 (FWIW, that program appears to be 'GPS Test Plus'
22:03 ds2 )
22:03 dproldan seen this?:  http://motoactvforum.com/phpbb/view​topic.php?f=6&t=22&p=36#p36
22:04 ds2 no, let me read
22:05 ds2 Hmmmm
22:06 dproldan I'm going to try to place four icons in the right-most screen,  seems doable
22:06 dproldan or maybe the left-most
22:07 dproldan hmm
22:10 dproldan this seems like a good way to spare the button remapping, launcher installation,
22:10 ds2 the button remapping is still useful for some apps
22:10 ds2 but I do like where this is heading
22:11 dproldan aaah,  you're right,  menu button is still needed
22:11 ds2 we can overload the music key
22:12 ds2 neither of them would quick response...something like - long hold down = menu, short tap = music
22:12 dproldan that's what I have as,  music-> menu
22:12 ds2 i have code to do that with the way I am doing buttons
22:12 dproldan then I use the earphone button for everything that real music button does
22:13 ds2 I like that. no point in music w/o a earphone
22:13 ds2 of course that means I have to use the button enabled earphones
22:13 dproldan yep
22:14 ds2 I got a nice retractable earphone so there is some reservations for that
22:35 dproldan time to sleep,   night
