    Nice video. Anyone know why the live tiles stop flipping after a few seconds.

    Notice the same thing today, but if you tap anywhere on the screen, they all start flipping all over the place again, crazy.

    Yeah, I knew that if you touched the screen, they would start flipping again. I wondering if they stop it for battery sakes.

    @11:47 she brings up her "screen times out after..." options and she has a "NEVER" choice...along with a 15 minute and 30 minute option. Is that Phone specific??? My Focus does not have anything longer than 5 minutes! I'd love a "Never" option...if I want the phone off, i'll flip it off. Although I'd probably go with 30 Minutes because really, that is a super long time.

    Yea, 5 minutes is enough, but say you were rocking to your phone for a party...you could plug the phone in and set up a docking type situation and had a constant touch screen player with a mini artist slide show constantly going.

    The never option has being on my Optimus 7 since Nodo. Probably phone specific, since I can unlock my phone using the Home button but I can't do it with the Focus.

    The Never options isn't available for me either. They should add a never for the tile flip too. Never stop that is. :)

    Maybe it won't work for Amoled devices. Just plain LCD ones, because it could screw the screens.

    I figured it was something along those lines...easier image burn or something...

    Are you sure you guys don't have it? I just checked on my Omnia 7 and that option appears for me. Omnia 7 & Focus are pretty much the same except the Focus has SD slot for memory.

    Edit: Nevermind I was under the password after selection. So you guys are right, must be because of the SAMOLED screens.
