Oooh! My HTC Desire Z just updated itself to Android 2.3.3. And suddenly the missing menus in 'People' have appeared and I've managed to selectively import specific Contacts groups. It also pulled in my Twitter contacts. This integration thing is really nifty.

Anyway. What all this has taught me is how much of a control-freak I am when it comes to technology. All these 'helpful' programs and processes, auto-start features, auto-sync, not only drains the phones battery, but mine as well. Simply put; do not want. I turned everything off. GPS services, both kinds, wlan, bluetooth, data, everything off. I will turn it on as needed, then swiftly shut it down again. (Maybe I've been spending too much time dealing with firewalls and ports...)

That's as far as I've gotten, and what I would consider functioning adequately. Once I've become a bit more familiar with the device I'll install the SDK and have some real fun!
