    Somehow I’m ‘sure’ that app will still be available from ‘somewhere’… 🙂

  2. Apple, helping the Brown shirts and gestapo one step at a time.

  3. My iPhone/AT&T contract just expired last month. On the first of this month, I got shiny new Google Phone II (Samsung Nexus S 4G). It has some signal strength and battery life issues (that are apparently known and being worked on, and can likely be fixed by a software update), but I must say that I do feel like the bonds have been broken. I was actually able to hook it up to my Linux laptop and simply copy an mp3 file over to use as a ringtone. I know some would say, “so what?” but if you do, then you’ve likely haven’t been in bondage to Apple/AT&T (or even to Verizon before the proliferation of smart phones, as they would disable certain features on their flip phones, too, to force you pay more for their services).

    And as you can see, Trapster is available for Android based phones here:

    And if I’m not mistaken, most (all?) Android based phones allow you install apps simply posted on websites, so if you trust the source, you can just bypass the Android Market altogether.

    All this, and I haven’t even rooted the phone (yet?). 🙂

    Honestly, I’m as against drunk driving as your average MADD member. But if you’re capapble of operating an smartphone app like that successfully, you’re not drunk enough to be any of the police’s business.
