    I apologize then.... I really don't feel "Google search" is a big secret as you stated yourself later in your post... I respect that giving out the info to get this product is frowned upon, and I won't do it... But, the perverbial cat is out of the bag. I was just stating capping it on this site won't do much good. Anything "leaked" and "beta'd" on the interwebs is subject to stealing... I'd imagine swype would have to take the hit on this one, and be more carefull on what they release in the future.

    I agree....it is out of the bag. It is meowing loudly. We all are just going to pretend it isn't sitting over there. Licking its chops. :)

    I also agree it is Swype's fault for making an awesome app and not capitalizing on it sooner because I will gladly pay for this app when the beta expires and it is released.



    ....poor tanknspank...lol...didn't know the guy was just to lazy to type out "food" :)

    People will do what they are going to do no doubt and the cat is out of the bag but as long as that discussion (where to get it or what exactly to search for) is off the boards we have done our jobs.

    The admins are working on a new app that allows us access to sniff packets and see where members are in cyberspace. If they are downloading or searching for illegal content we will be able to ban them from the internet.

    Until the app is complete people can do as they please and we have no recourse.

    I would pay as well... but reading in other threads about the subject, it looks like they aren't going to release it, even as a paid app. You have to purchase a crappy phone that has it pre-installed...

    watch the language? how about no, ok? those asteriks are there for a reason. i got something you can watch - it's called this forum. you guys need to worry about something besides language and pictures of a pot leaf. i emailed THREE MODS LAST WEEK about this swype crap on this forum. nothing gets done until today and all you can say is watch the language because i said the S word and it was in asteriks? are we in kindergarten here?

    there are SO MANY useless posts in this place. posts of the incredible in every damn section. you guys really need to get your act together. if it wasn't for the influx of clueless people who spam this forum with the same questions over and over it would be absolutely useless.

    p.s. - ban it if you want, i dont need to post here anymore. and if i do trust me, i have more email and ip addresses than the bible has psalms.

    That's uncertain at this point. But Swype has good reasons (at least from their point of view) for not releasing the software to end-users. First, they are a small company that recognizes (amazingly) that they are ill-equipped to provide the kind of support they believe is necessary for their product. By selling to manufacturers they off-load much of that support burden.

    Second, they have designed their product to be part of a device's operating system, not a third-party application. The bug in the current beta is an example of the problems the software encounters in the latter form.

    Third, they believe, rightly or wrongly, that the firm derives a greater profit from sales to manufacturers and other OEM's than to the end-user, especially when the cost of support is taken into consideration.

    That having been said, the proliferation of android phones may well lead (or may already have led) to a reconsideration of the firm's business model.

    What is causing you to get so angry??? I was asking a simple question that could have easily been answered with a simple ok, or sorry, but no. You decide to go on a humongous rant? I'm sorry you feel that way, but no one or nothing is forcing you to come here. If you feel that way, go hang at alldroid or mydroidworld.

    And the post about swype get removed as soon as the moderators are either notified or notice themselves. The one I just notified Cereal about was locked and all links removed within 5 minutes, so I find it hard to believe that NOTHING was done when all links to swype are removed as soon as the mods are notified.

    Also, I'm no mod or administrator. I just help people with problems they are having with their phones. No reason to tell me to watch a forum when I can do no more than you about it.

    Wow. Let me see if I can follow your obtuse logic here. This forum, that you voluntarily frequent, provides value to those who visit (YOU) only because clueless people ask the same questions repetitively? Those who visit repetively (YOU) must be slow learners.

    Wow! You must be somebody important. I feel so honored to have been part of a thread with you.

    How about if you have nothing to say, to just move on to the next thread?

    :icon_eek: OMG you guys work for the government don't you! I knew it! All the masculine ads, the number of men/women that serve our country on this forum...it is all clear!!

    Unfortunately for you, I'm actually an android from the future and I have technology to block your app from tracing my internet surfing. My existance on this board and ownership of Motorola Droid 1 is all but a feint. I am DROID 4287: Deadly Reactor Of Intergalactic Death 4287.

    ehhh...ok I think I took that one too far, please excuse the horrible acronym :blink::huh::wacko:

    foul language spelled out with asterisks offends me as a human being and makes me question my life's worth. Please refrain from implying anything other that sunshine and lollipops

    Edit: and puppies, I like those too

    shouldn't all the threads talking about sense ui on the moto droid be banned as well? like ripped desire roms since that is technically stealing also.

    you're gonna get taken to a LOT of porn sites...

    I'm sorry, I was under the impression that the Incredible was an anDROID device? My mistake. That "Droid Selector" button up there must be for profiling purposes. What a ****** ****. (Doodoo face).
