    Ya got nada, nothing, zilch Go read a book and stop worrying about Android. When you post nonsense like this it only makes you seem fearful. Android exists. Deal with it.

    MY GOD MAN! So many friggin ppl complain about how this is an APPLE forum not an ANDROID forum. Most of the Android threads are started by Mac users! Pathetic!

    Why are you all SO scared of Android that you need to post about it in a Mac forum? Seriously, be happy with YOUR purchase.

    Your the type of person who would love a dictatorship.

    Seriously WTF are you talking about. I can make a fake photoshop program for MacOSX and if someone downloads it, and thinks its a the real thing, its apples fault? Would you prefer everything be a closed market. We might as while shutdown, Windows, MacOSX, and Linux cause they all are "open" you can download applications, you can be tricked into thinking they are something else same as a store.

    "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither."

    Think about it (if you can).

    Although: that would be expecting too much of you, obviously.

    So just keep "thinking different". That's good enough for you and that's what you deserve.

    No, don't be mean. That's not what he said.

    All he said is that the internet would be a better place if it was owned by Apple.
    Same applies to all "open" market places.

    We have a genius here, obviously.

    Let's hope the genius doesn't work for Apple.

    I'm not a fan of censorship as a general rule. However...IF I was "KING of the INTERNET", you'd have to take a basic aptitude and spelling test prior to posting, LOL.

    Really Op? You and the developer are the same. Putting out hate about something. Your post should have been about how someone abuses a market that is open source. You should figure out how to stop the developer from issuing out hate instead of showing the same tendencies.

    Way to be overly dramatic. Apple has a store. Apple decides what does or does not go in the store, just like 99% of other stores in the world. No one is attacking your human rights. I'm not suggesting anything is wrong with the way Android does it, either.

    The fake tweetdeck app was gone within a few hours and by the time I looked at it (last night) there was already about ten comments on it warning people not to download it.

    These people actually bought the app in order to comment on it and warn people off it. (and then they hit the 'refund and uninstall' button, obviously)

    Android - where people care about each other ;)

    edit: correction - it's still there, which is pretty shoddy on Google's part. the nazi one is gone though.

    I may be wrong, but wasn't it Benjamin Franklin that said that? I don't think he had the app store in mind when he said that.

    No, the term "aptitude test" used above was correct.

    Main Entry: aptitude test
    Function: noun
    Date: 1923
    : a standardized test designed to predict an individual's ability to learn certain skills

    Perhaps you are the one in need of remedial English instruction.

    You should try really really hard to make sure you are using a word correctly before you go and tell someone to "learn english."

    I don't often say this but, the english teacher in me can't resist: you fail.

    I'm not sure if nazi apps on the android marketplace prove a failure of the "open" ecosystem, but it definitely is a shinning example of the slippery slope it sits on.
