(see those posts here,) I thought she was an OK reader, but she had a lot of potential that was going to waste. Sure enough not 2 days after I sent the NC back through the mail (I was only borrowing it, after all,) we get news that it's been ROOTED. From there, it was a fantasyland of apps, workarounds, ROMs, everything you could want. Except for one thing. Noone had overclocked it, not even a little bit. Well that's changed, and it's changed today.

Class Action Lawsuit against Samsung and T-Mobile. Then, a fellow by the name of s15274n over on XDA forums has started up a Twitter campaign where people Tweet their complaints about Samsung, affixing the hashtag #NeverAgain to each to make Samsung understand the people! This is the most important cause of your LIFE, everyone. Rally together and FIGHT the people that are giving you internet and phone service. Do it now!
holding back of updates to telephones (specifically of Android 2.2 Froyo and 4G speeds to the Samsung Vibrant.) He says he's secured a lawyer, filed the lawsuit, and have explained all issues with them (the lawyers) and they agree that he has a very strong case.
a big fat post by the name of "Total Jerk Developer Steals Beta Game He Was Supposed to be Testing, Publishes to Android Market." Kind of a mouthful, yes? Well it turns out that the guy guilty of such a crime has a mouth full of more than just one stolen game - he's got a whole batch. This guy (or guys, or gals, whatever it might be) goes by the name DavinciDevelopers and is stealing APKs for apps left and right, files that are supposed to be testers for developers, publishing them to the Android Marketplace as his own. This is terrible in more ways than one, and we've got to stop him.
PacMap (a game of PacMan.) This one, like PacMap, is a location-based game that sees where you are on a map (in map view, or satellite view, etc) and shows you where all the zombies are. Depending on the difficulty of the game you choose, you could be outrunning a single zombie moving at 2MPH, or a whole hoard moving at 8MPH! You'll have your face in your phone, tearing up the streets with your feet as you outrun the living dead in virtual reality. Terror!
