For those of you that can’t make it to a computer or TV during a match, we’ll explain how you can use your Android phone to watch the games on the go – but promise not to blame us when you scream ‘GOOOOOOOAAAAAAL’ while riding the subway.Since 2.2 has leaked, and includes Flash, you should be able to catch the games live on any site that is streaming them in Flash – without the need for SkyFire.

How to remove home screens?
Tuesday 16th of November 2010
I've searched fairly extensively in the forums for the answer, but every thread seems to be dedicated to adding home screens. I use no more than 8 -10 apps. How do I remove homescreens? I hate that it fouls up my wallpaper pictures that I'm trying to use. Overzoomed & over pixelated - how do I fix this? I don't want to have to crop my photos taken from the droid camera. I want to frame the picture vertically with the camera, and use the image as my homescreen wall paper? My current screen looks like I used a VGA webcam to take the picture, not a 5MP camera. (Or even my Canon T2i when I try to use an image taken from that)Any help appreciated!edit:I've tried researching some Launcher pro stuff but I'm new to android and don't really have any idea where to get a launcher pro 101 or cliffs notes. Everything currently just seems to be updates and bug fixes.
