I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

comment Swype dictionary keeps getting deleted
I don't know what causes the dictionary to be deleted. That's part of the question. The dictionary may be stored on the SD card, but the app isn't. Also, it's not like I have a habit of removing the SD card, and I don't turn on USB mode all that often.

No, not rooted. I'm not sure if the backup would capture the dictionary either.

comment Android phone can't access anything through VPN
Do other devices connecting through this VPN work as expected? The problem sounds to be with your VPN configuration on the laptop, which would put this question out of scope.

comment Is there a TTS app that will read me my email or a webpage?
You don't have to pay a subscription. Where does it say you have to pay a subscription? I haven't used it enough to tell if really works well, though.

comment What is assisted GPS?
Performance will vary depending on the quality of the time signal from the cell tower and the data rate you're able to achieve. GPS by itself is very battery intensive, but the overhead for the assisted part is fairly minimal if there's good cell coverage.

More specifically, it uses the cell network so that a GPS fix converges faster.

comment Nexus One overheats/restarts when connected to car dock or car charger
Shutting off the screen while using navigation seems to be the best solution, as I'll still get verbal prompts.
