PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On the day CyanogenMod moves CM10 to stable, their domain is hijacked by a community 'member'. "We don't like how this played out, and we are deeply hurt. Likewise, we are deeply saddened at the confusion this may have caused the community. We will continue to be open about the what, when, how, but unfortunately, we may never know the 'why' - though greed comes to mind. The team itself has not made a profit off of CM and that is not our goal. But to have one of our own betray the community like this is beyond our comprehension." This makes me so angry and sad. Slightly related: it's about damn time the Googles and Samsungs of this world invest some money and resources into CyanogenMod to give them a solid infrastructure to work with. It would be peanuts for them financially.

Actually Samsung employs the lead dev of CM, and they provide free phones to some of the devs to work on them. They should get a lot more recognition than they do for their support of cyanogenmod (obviously, it pales in comparison with the community's support, but it's still more than any other company I can call to mind).
