    Now I'm all for openess and linux and all that good junk, but why would Google let apps only for rooted phones into the marketplace taking in account how they go through the effort to patch holes and stop rooting in general?

    Hahaha I have no earthly clue. I think they're starting to give up a bit, honestly. Google seems a bit more lenient than Apple. I can't really see Google as a corporation. I see them more as an awesome group of people that make kickass maps. So when Google starts telling me what to do, I'm like "awe, you're so cute." And I think they know that too

    Unlike Apple, who says jailbraking an iPhone is illegal, Google tends to support openness. I wouldn't say they've taken steps to stop rooting, nor have they spoken out against it. Think about the trouble with the Google Voice app and the App Store from Apple. It received so much attention the FCC got involved lol. Like a previous poster said, I don't see Google as a corporation, and I appreciate that.
