    ok, when i set the value to 1 and back out of my editor and power cycle my phone, the value still goes back to 0. i also noticed when going through the directory hkcu/software/palringo
    instead of it saying palringo it says, parlingo

    You can make your Q speak Spanish using this free Talking Spanish Phrasebook.
    Several other languages are available as well.

    That's pretty geeky, no? :smile:
    (Although I suppose Latin or Esperanto would have a higher geek factor.)

    i use orb to stream my web cam from home. it even activates it when it is off and idle. i also stream my satellite with it. but what people really seam to find impressive is when i use MS live search to find a phone #. something about talking to the phone and getting a # someone needs is jaw dropping for people. the blackberry version does not have speech and so it does not get the same reaction. those are my geeky tricks to impress.

    also assigning voice commands to you programs is fun for others. like i use, "Open Moto Q Flashlight" and light up a room.

    It is native on mine. However I don't use it that often due to spelling errors. It usese predictive text and that can be the cause of the errors.

    You probably coulda started your own theard for this...but the flashlight cab is call MotoQFlashlight, just install it.

    The "webcam thing" i didn't read back thru the thread. But starting your own thread and giving more of an explaination would greatly increase you chance of help:smile:

    My favorite thing so far has to be the tethering... just being on the road right now online thanks to my Q9C is great! They made it so easy on this one & I really appreciate it.

    1) "push" instant email
    2) ability to browse the web & read news and whatever else online
    3) I upload my favorite TV episodes in WMV format and watch them with Windows media player when waiting around in random places. Can also download and load full length movies and watch them on airplane flights
    4) I have a friend who views PDF files and uses them to study while he's at the gym....
    5) My phone theme is the batman logo, and when I have a missed call it shows the batman spotlight that says "1 missed call"
