appbrain fast web installer to circumvent “market” requires gmail account self defeating

Filed under: AYBABTG,irony — Sagacious Himself @ 2:01 pm

I have not added google credentials to my android.  Oh noes, no market.  whatever.  AppBrain requires the very element market requires.  Brilliant  “circumvention”.

Fortunately we have F-droid repository for F/OSS

PhantomAlert.com farce: pay to work for phantom alert, bait and switch marketing language, oh my another “smart” phone scam? (phantomalert review: avoid)

You want me to add to- and verify your database AND charge me? no.

http://www.phantomalert.com/Free-Download-Page/Download-Page.html

Pay $10/month at least for the privilege of contributing to the accuracy of the phantomalert database is a privilege I need not.  Better model for me is a PGP signed trust model: the better the contributor the more time-accurate the database one may download freely.

.

If I am to subscribe to a payment model I expect FAR better than casual community contributions to a nebulous database with VERY little intelligence applied to design.

.

How the phantomalert marketing scam works:

“drivers and spotters report speed traps..on our website.  Then drivers simply download our .. database in to [sic] their GPS” …

.

What?  No mention of paying to work for phantomalert?

“you could be making singles of dollars [scamming friends with craig’s list and ebay]” — review

.

All the while RadarDroid Pro becoming less and less appealing.

waze, social gps navigation, actual-freeware, integrates speed trap reporting with self expiration.  PhantomAlert database continues to stagnate.   http://m.waze.com  to download latest client without [android] market.

(As android market continues to decay from MALWARE speciously claiming to be freeware the iphone platform becomes more appealing. )

IBM’s CoScripter is a thing of beauty.  Is Cucumber?  It is cumbersomeIt falls short of the CoScript mark out the gate.  Metaphor abuse done.
