YOU CAN PINCH TO (un)ZOOM ANGRY BIRDS?! SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU'RE SHOOTING AT!? Sheesh, that changes the whole dynamic - it even seems to remember the zoom on reentering. =D>

Thank you for your usual well balanced summary of key points. My mind did wander a bit during the 4 minutes here and 2 minutes there of a motionless screen... like: (I wonder why an ugly screen protector if the thing never goes outside) (this reminds me of projector presentations where they mask part or all of the slide while talking on and on) (wouldn't it be nicer to have the archos running music and a slideshow during the non-demo talking parts, instead of sitting there like a lump) :p

Actually, the browsers did slow down quite a bit. You won't notice it in the forums but when you go to graphic intensive sites, you'll notice it.

The way the graphics are handled have changed. In 2.1, you can see a dithering pattern on the images. Especially noticeable in the perpetual babe threads (I was admiring the skin tones!). Leading me to believe the os was rendering at a lower bitrate.

In 2.2, the dithering patterns are gone and the images are clearer. But the browsers have slowed down. You can no longer flick through an imageboard as smoothly as in 2.1.

Wish there was an option for setting the color mode.
