Constructive criticism time: please, please, please guys, pronounce Cyanogen correctly. It's not See-anogen, it's Sigh-anogen! It’s killing me!

Love the show!

Question for Antuan-

He often discusses flashing new and different mods to his phone- what I'd like to better understand is what method does he use to backup all of his apps and settings to minimize the hassle factor when re-flashing? Can he give a quick summary of how he gets his phone back up and running with all of his "stuff" once he puts a new version of the op system on the phone.

Thanks-
Philip

Hello again this is Ryan from Westminster, MarylanD. You did not really answer my question last week about Google TV. My question was not targeting the deal I may get for the keyboard and the Revue. I was asking if Google TV was dead. Is Google still developing Android for Google TV? Will there be OS updates. Ps the keyboard is slightly smaller and has a track pad build in. it operates by Logitech's Unifying receiver not Bluetooth. Great for HTPCs
Side Comment
Just when you agree to stop talking so much about it. The Droid Bionic decides to come out. – Ryan”
