Apple We all know Apple's App Store policies are a bit willy-nilly, inconsistent, and completely unreliable. This issue has been going on for a while now, and it doesn't see like anything has changed. The latest interesting App Store rejection is especially interesting, as it involves Apple rejecting an application related to one of its detractors: the EFF.

Fully functional only after you provide a Google ID, that is. Until then it's just a brick.


True, but you don't actually need to use any google tools against that ID once you've provided


You need to root an Android phone the same way you need to jailbreak an iPhone if you actually want functionality on your terms. There's no free lunch with Google, or the providers.


All rooting does is gives you a small handful of additional apps and beta OS updates (some of which aren't even stable).

And though you might be locked to T-Mobile with the G1, that's no different to the network locking on the majorety of any other phones these days (smart or bog standard handsets)
