    I've this idea: whenever I want a droid file - an SBF or what ever - I often am pointed to a link on a free upload site. Why isn't there a central site just for droid files? It would be easy enough to do, so why hasn't it been done? Would Moto or VZW have it shut down? I am contemplating setting this up. Thoughts?

    I'm guessing nobody wants to pay for bandwidth is the reason.
    Orr because somebody already did it haha

    No reason if it doesn't contain infringing content.

    Is an SBF file copyrighted?

    You can host what you want...Now linking them here might be a different story.

    I would not link files... just the site... I would have to check the TOS first I gather.

    It would seem so much easier than looking all over for files on megaupload and the like.

    I would even be able to give individual authors of software access to upload their files and control them. (I think)

    Please do...We've had one such setup taken down by legal action.

    Hmmm.... Well, I am going to give this a try and see what happens.

    I am only familiar with iPhone, X, and Global. I am going to start to gather files and put a site together. It is fairly ridiculous using these mega upload sites. There are all sorts of iPhone repositories. They call them "repos". Why not for droid??
