Android-wise I was an early adopter, pre-ordering a G1 back in 2007. I had it rooted and running custom ROMs before it was a one-click deal and before NANDRIOD backups were easy to do! It's definitely less scary these days.

Having since had HTC Sense and Samsung Touchwhiz skinned devices, and always ending up rooting them to run stock / Cyanogenmod ROMs, I've decided to go all Nexus and currently have a Nexus 4 & Nexus 7.

comment Gmail notification sound only for new mail
I get the issue if I mark anything as unread or move an unread archived item back into the inbox (i.e. the notification happens if the number of unread items in the inbox increases)

comment How can I tell the Android Market that I'm running an updated version of Android?
Don't some apps have hardware requirements, e.g. high res screen, that your device might not meet, regardless of the OS version?

comment Easily tabbing to previous or next field
Try this link for the stock Gingerbread keyboard: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=875202 This should give you contextual options like "Next", "Done" or "Go" when appropriate.

Are you looking for a way to share your PC's internet connection over USB, rather than streaming video files stored locally on your PC?

comment Is there a zoom and timer functionality on Nexus S camera?
What GAThrawn said - digital zoom is essentially the same as cropping the image afterwards which you can do within the standard gallery app after taking your picture.

comment Why are files sent through Gmail renamed?
I've only noticed this with failed/partial downloads (from anywhere) - when I've had particular problems with something I've ended up with 'downloadfile', 'downloadfile-1', 'downloadfile-2', etc. Otherwise, I'm sure my downloaded files keep the original filenames.

comment Can I emulate a Bluetooth keyboard with my Android device?
A good comment on there today ;) Current lack of Windows support will be a problem for most, but this is the one to watch.
