the silly-ass results of d.r.m gone wild!!!!!!!

developers for Google's Android mobile OS are discovering they cant buy or use paid g1 apps....
. Why? Because Google is afraid that developers, with greater levels of access, will be able to "break" the DRM and create unauthorized copies.

Of course, people will figure out how to break the DRM and make unauthorized copies anyway.
(and by they WILL i mean they HAVE,,,and everyone but google knows it)

So all Google has really done is (a) piss off a lot of developers (b) shrink the market for paid apps (c) make it that much more difficult for developers to get, create and test such paid apps. In all this focus on protecting, Google seems to have missed out on the fact that it's more important to be creating and building than protecting.
