    Angry Death of Game Emulators

    Arguably, but not really, the most popular emulators on the Android Market have been yanked by Google. The *oid line, developed by Yongzh, seems to have finally rubbed Google, or some console developers the wrong way.



    Engadget has noted that Mr. Zhang has moved his line of emulators to the SlideME store where they will be free for the time being so users who purchased the apps in the Market will continue to receive updates for the time being.

    SOURCE: Android Market's most popular emulators disappear without a trace (update) -- Engadget

    Read the update.

    Simply put, he took code that is given out for free, made a program and charged for it. He then refused to provide his source code which is a requirement. He failed to follow the terms so he got his apps taken off. I checked and there are other emulators there.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but that's what i got from the update and comments.

    So he violated googles rule so google removed him? How does that not make google a cult?
