    Gizmodo too (i stopped reading them but I think lifehacker is now a part of giz instead of an independent site)

    No SONY is listening too.....

    Verizon/AT&T are who wants locked bootloaders, not Motorola/SONY/HTC....

    You're sending your complaints to the wrong people!!!


    "devices locked to a specific carrier will not come with an unlocked bootloader"

    I am well aware of this now. Things have to change. I am trying to formulate all of my recent thoughts on this into words now. This new news isn't really new, its just a confirmation of all of my fears, I never thought it would happen so soon, thats why I wanted to start with moto. Well the issue is clearly larger. I am still writing my response to p3's food for thought. I for one am not going to let these policy changes go into effect silently and without public exposure.

    Stay tuned.

    Wug: please keep me in the loop, I will use whatever leverage I can find to bump you up above the average soapbox. Pseudo viral (leaving it up on every computer I can) handouts bulletins announcements and anything else I can think of. Just keep me up to speed

    @PalmerCurling will do, me an ibproud were talking about setting up a shared google document to use as our centralized location for sharing ideas. Kinda ironic considering this is pertaining to android but thats besides the point. I need today to gather my thoughts and write them down. Plus we need to release information when people are thinking rationally again. Right now the shock factor is in effect and a lot of people are misinterpreting what's really going on. I want to choose my words carefully and explain my position clearly. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, but I would like to do the best that I can at providing a clear overview of the big picture as I see to be. People are still thinking within the framework of their personal reality. "oh no.. they are tracking me! ", "should I unroot?", "are they going to charge me?". I am hoping some of this wears off and people can get back to thinking reasonably about an issue that is effectively hurting an entire community.

    Stay tuned for my response.

    A public blog where anybody can post there ideas (pending approval to make sure it is appropriate) and the people could vote the posts up and down with a thumbs up or down would be good..


    These carriers are very dumb because the rooted community in it 's entirety is much bigger than anybody gives it credit for, and someone hopefully Sprint will realize that there are a lot of unhappy people looking for a new home

    Per each rooted-user/dev/hacker/geek/whatever you want to call us, how many people do you think we influence? Who do average users look up to when making technology based decisions? How many friends or friends of friends have each one of you given advice to regarding a technology based purchase? How many people have you directly or indirectly convinced to buy a droid? Do you honestly think that all average users only obtain their information through ads and commercials? Do they not read other media sources? Do they not look to the more knowledgable end users for information?

    What happens when the general consensus amongst the advanced end-users is, "Droid Doesn't"? Will that message not trickle down to the average user, will it only remain relevant to the devs? What happens when a product advertised as open source is exposed to be the polar opposite? Will that not hurt their image? Will that not hurt their reputation? When android dies in the eyes of the ones who saw it for its true potential, will its future remain bright? Will we all (advance & average users) still purchase these devices?

    Ask yourself these questions and tell me again if you think we are a significant force.

    Android giving up it's only advantage over iOs is not a good look

    @PalmerCurling, the more I think about this, the more I realize that we have more leverage than you would think. I am looking forward to sharing my plans with you when I have them solidified.
