So happy to see an Android show! I just got my EVO and I love it. My question is what is the deal with Qik? This app was touted as the most rad thing ever for video chatting but when I open it all I can do is record and share video. I found fring in the market and that does video chat and skype and works really well. Do you guys expect Qik to get its act together?

Also there is a tethering app called PDAnet in the market that allows free tethering. Would using it get my service cancelled? Seems too good to be true.

Love the show!
