    Sorry the trouble has been ongoing, but it would have been pretty cool back in the day to talk to Jeff Hawkins about a digitizer.

    What I want to know is just what kind of halloween parties was Hookette at this year... wait, I take it back. I don't want to know. :eek:

    Hookette is anxious to slip into a Pro1X because she knows as soon as I get it the Pro1 is going to become both experimental guinea pig and learning lab. :vbeek: :vbwink::vbcool:

    Fingers crossed, I might have found another variable. The demons were here, then I found that the horizontal bottom of the screen, the part that clicks back against the surface behind the keyboard, had a gap between the screen frame and the screen backplate. It's possible I introduced that gap when I put the screen back together although I though I had really made sure that I had snapped all around. That is the hardest edge to do because the hinge restricts angle of access. But I pressed where I knew the clips were, got a couple of snaps and powered up and the demons are gone. I just typed this whole post on my pro1.

    I'll have wait 24 hours before being sure. Yesterday it took 3 hours for the demons to come back rushing in.

    Sadly, no go. Took only 2 hours and 45 minutes for the demons to come back with a new symptom. Aside from phantom touches setting things off, it started registering actual touches elsewhere on the screen, so if I tapped for network settings I got display settings, for example. Took me 5 or 10 minutes to figure out how to get the phone to register the power off option.

    I give up. There is something truly fundamentally wrong with this display and I will await it's replacement, as painful as it is to go back to using just a slab. Don't get me wrong. The Moto G8 Power is a very nice slab. But it is just a slab.
