    That's why I like Slacker so much. Its caching feature really does wonders for battery life and since I spend several hours a day at my desk it's a non-issue to simply plug it in once a week and let the stations refresh.

    I'd like to get the Seidio extended battery that doesn't require a new back - THEN my Seidio case/combo would be useless.

    I saw the engadget guy on Jimmy fallon and he was showing the new HTC pro or whatever. The phone isn't what I was interested in but the charger. He showed the charger for the phone that didn't have a plug it was a round thing that you just place your phone and it charges. Is this something new? Anyone got info on this? Or is this old news?

    that's been out for a while. you can do it for laptops too. i've also seen something where you can link together devices on the same desk such as a camera and a laptop.

    anyway, it's time for them to release the new tech for batteries. i bet it's all ready.. they just want to release it later to sucker people into forking over even more money.
