This site seriously has the greatest community of readers I have ever seen.  I woke up yesterday morning, checked out the Droid Life Facebook page and found an amazing custom boot animation that one of our readers had tossed together in his spare time.  Un-frickin-believable.  Seriously, you guys are all so amazing.

I can’t thank Kevin enough for this.  Thanks man!
