Today, I woke up with a quite sad and disgusting new. Google doesn’t let ADPs (Android Developer Phones) see and download neither copy-protected nor paid apps. Why? Because Google protects the apps using a simple method: “Let’s put the apps in a folder the user cannot see”. But there is the problem, ADP’s users can see every folder, and can copy from and to them. I don’t know who the security guys are but avoiding developers to use that kind of apps is not the solution. If hiding the folder is the new super-safe state-of-the-art piracy-avoiding technique let me say that it sucks. This kind of decisions makes me wonder what’s the actual reason the apps cannot be installed in the sd card. Maybe because it is harder to hide a folder there?
Finally, I received my brand new G1 (dev edition) yesterday morning. It was love at first sight, even with some sentences for the memory I won’t tell here. Anyway I like it, so here you are some advices to make the battery last longer:
1.- Delete all APN you are not going to use (in my case, all T-Mobile access points).
2.- Turn off Wi-Fi, bluetooth and GPS unless you need them.
3.- Use only 2G networks if you do not need 3G.
4.- Screen brightness is fine at 25% (at least for me).
I tell you more when I have enough time to play with my new gadget.
By the way, it cost 430â‚¬.
