called aCar in the droid market... check it out...

Keeps all your logs for fuel & maintenance as well as service reminders.... I'm not affiliated with em, a buddy just pointed it out to me... backs up all your data as well if you want to donate.

I had finally found a bound note book I liked to keep up with all my stuff & my buddy told me about it. Weirdness... I may still do it as it's a good back up of my own...

Someone may have already posted about this & I am too new to have seen it...

Will it allow me to scan in the last six-plus years' info from my rather tattered little notebook that's sitting in my glovebox?


j/k I may have to check this out. Thanks.



EDIT: Done.

Ha! Don't think it's got a OCR setup in it, although that would be pretty cool & helpful!!!

ebay has a ton. Pay the extra for a US unit. The foreign ones take weeks to ship, I've heard...

I want a droid. I am counting down the months until I can upgrade my iphone right into the filing cabinet.

That is what I did (well I sold the iphone haha). I love my Droid X but if the Droid 2 (has a physical keyboard) would have been out I would have it.

Besides that though the Android platform/market etc etc is just plain BETTER. No Apple control nazi's trying to get into your pockets for every cent possible. Android market also allows developers to DEVELOP without tight restrictions on what they can and can't do.

my boss just got an Atrix. with the laptop dock. can't wait to play with it tomorrow. I don't know if it's android based or not.

Atrix is android based. Coworker has one. He did not get the laptop dock.

I love my Evo which is Android based. You can keep the physical keyboards. Swype has made life so much easier! It takes a bit to get used to it, but once you do get used to it, you'll wonder where it's been your entire life. Like high speed net, like DVRs, like oxygen.

It is very, very cool. Logmein works on the docked Firefox, so he can access his work computer from pretty much anywhere. And it's a nice size phone actually. Very fast too.
