    Well Moto just lost me as a customer - I'm not there target audience so screw them.

    I love my droid X to death - great device, but if this is their attitude (just like I hate Apple) I'm going to switch to a company with morals like HTC.
    <- ignore the dancing android - I want to murder everyone

    this whole thing just doesn't make sense. It's like they take a little too much pride in
    their work or something bizarre like that. Maybe rooting as they see it could be another avenue
    for someone to build a better phone and compete with them?
    i dunno...

    How would it look to you if you spent $20,000,000 developing a car, tweaking it, tuning it, making it perform just so, and six weeks after putting it on the market some wingnut from Podunk, Alabama offered a tuner kit that changed three wires, two of the spark plugs, and inserted a small unit into the exhaust stream that added another 100 horsepower, cleaned up the exhaust, and unlocked a manual shift mode on the automatic transmission? And not only that, but the whole installation took less than an hour, any idiot could do it provided they followed the directions this guy included, actually added another 2MPG, and he sold the whole kit for $15.

    Because that's pretty much what any custom ROM does for the Droid 1. It's EMBARRASSING. I kinda like the statement someone made -- Motorola; you do the hardware and let us do the software.

    By the way, in the above model I would install kits in all the cars sold in the future, offer a free recall on the car to install the upgrade kit for all comers, and offer the guy a job.
    Dorian and Jayce Miskel like this.

    Nice analogy! And that's exactly how I feel about Samsung sometimes.

    Don't worry guys I am developing a phone that will be truly unlocked!! So far I have a piece of aluminum, 1 aaa battery, a rubberband, some confetti and an old car speaker. I feel a breakthrough coming any day now.....
    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    Unicorns you say? I have never heard of such a thing for a phone, Pegasus maybe but that was just that one time and we all know how that turned out!
