Priority Inbox Shortcut on 2.2 Phones

I found this out answering a question over at the Android StackExchange Q&A site concerning editing previous entries in a search box, for instance the google search widget or searching the App Market, to save you from re-typing everything in. Simply use the trackball or d-pad to select the entry you want to edit, tap the search box so that it has focus, and then edit like normal. I’ve only tested this on my Nexus One, but I know you have a couple of Droids to test this on. Hope this helps some people out there.

Love the show,
Mike
