I'm experiencing the same grief with my top end SB. I've taken to just shutting it down. Experienced the ”hot bag” when removing it from my carrying sleeve once so far. Sleep rarely resumes properly. I love the device, but this is annoying. At least it boots swiftly. Equally annoyed by Chrome crashing on the first startup after a boot.

Could They Detect a Signal From the Future?
Perhaps they are right and they can send "messages" back via particles. Indeed, maybe they are already doing so now. My question is "How would they take into account where the Earth and the receiver were in the past to ensure the messages would be detected?"
Think about it. Earth is constantly rotating as it orbits Sol, which is also working its way around the Milky Way as it orbits and travels up and down vertically in the elliptical plane. That's a lot of information to calculate. If you are sending a message through time, it likely isn't bound by local space as it crosses dimensions. You'd need to calculate for both where and when you want the message to be received.
So if you sent a message back from 2020 to today, the location of the transmitter/receiver will not be in the same absolute place as the receiver's location in the past. If that wasn't taken into account, there might be a signal/message somewhere out in space that is going undetected.
So time traveling particles may exist and may carry messages back to the past, but we can't prove it. It would likely not be bound by local forces once unstuck from time.
The Missing 2GB is This?
I guess we just found out why the drive in the phone has been missing 2GB of storage space due to partitioning. On the XDA forums, people have been puzzling over the inability to see all 4GB and initially wondered if they had received the Desire Z's drive. Now that we know the OS can reflash itself at will, the missing 2GB's function is discovered. Shame this is not pure stock Android (missing tethering/wifi hotspot), because I am damn tempted to leave my iphone 3G for this.
Google, please consider releasing a Nexus 2.
Can Deselect Chrome
My Google Earth doesn't detect an update, but CNET's Tech Tracker told me there is one. I saw that the download from the official site bundles Chrome, but I was able to deselect it. You are not forced into it. There are two options selected : Bundle Chrome and Make Chrome Default. Just uncheck the boxes and you won't have to worry about it.
Active Sonar Detects with Submerged Receivers?
Let me get this straight. Let's say I am in a 688I (LA Class) attack sub when a P-3 or some other aircraft goes active via lasers to detect a Russian sub. I'm exposed by the same pulse, negating any advantage I had. One reason subs hate to go active is because it gives away their position. If I can go active and detect something 6000' away, I know that someone roughly 60,000' can pinpoint my position as I gave myself away.
Having an airdale give away a sub's position could be disasterous. Slow data rates and a few 220db pulses I can live with (better than the buoy or floating wire. Airdales going active and compromising our subs, bad. Better to do that in an area where our subs are known to NOT be in, and use skimmers' buoys to detect.
RIP and may the other one suffer.
Christine Lakinski, may there be a heaven for you to go to, and may you rest in peace. I am very sorry for how this world, and especially this miscreant have treated you, and I hope that you are in a better place now. RIP dear.
May this sorry bastard be made to pay for this act every day for the rest of his life.
Sounds easy to defeat
There is nothing here to stop people from playing with one of these DVDs with varying pulses of electricity until they learn what will safely render the layer transparent. Then the hackers can just post the voltage on the Doom 9 forum. What a waste of money to develope, as well as outfitting retailers to support this.
