Tip of the week
Hey guys, love the show. Just wanted to share a quick tip about 2.2 Froyo and flash. We all know that flash can slow down the browser and can make scrolling really unpleasant and laggy. If you go to your browser settings and select ""Enable plug-ins"" you have the option for ""always on"", ""on demand"", or ""off"". By selecting ""on demand"" it will only show flash content when you click on the flash content. That way when you go to a page with a lot of flash ads they will not render unless you click on it. I have had 2.2 with flash on my nexus for a few weeks and this tip has made my browsing experience flawless.
Great job on the show. Thanks.
Loving the show so far.
I just switched from my Palm PRE to the EVO and I LOVE the phone. I am trying to find a really good podcast catcher. Everything that I have tried so far is junk. Want download podcasts or want update any podcast at night even when I set it to update at midnight. I had a really good one on my PRE called DRPodder and it worked perfectly all the time. I have tried 3 different ones on my EVO and don't like any of them. What do you suggest for FREE and one that is worth buying. I will pay for a good one but free is free.
