    Indeed. I read about that the other day. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that.

    Well....I think the end idea is to lock down the phone and make it tighter, that said, in working with these developers, they hear the voice of the modding community, allowing for a happy medium for all concerned.

    Two things that trouble me:
    Take away the devs that the rest of us count on for android (e.g. Koush, I believe he's on winmobile now)
    and I forgot what else bothers me, by the way Dorian, did you notice the A S S in A S S ISTANCE in your signature is edited out by the forum? lol

    I would tend to think so, I think the t-shirt is their way of saying "we see you" and "we're watching you".
    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.

    Windows is taking aggressive stance (as well as an excellent dev) which is commendable. If only Moto would follow...

    I agree, bring them back to android to devise a way where we can't steal their 3g tethering and the bootloader opens right up in a thank you gesture.

    It's been my experience that as long as MS gets their money, and no copyrights are infringed upon, they're pretty much ok with it.
