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. )

mobile phones: how is it as a phone?

Why is Motorola targetting the iTard market with the Motorola Droid?

Should not phones primarily BOTH

(1) have excellent signal reception/relay
AND

(2) have excellent audio fidelity / vocoders

???

YES!

Does the motorola droid? who knows?!  The engineers might not have bothered testing.  What has happened to the motorola name? merely YAPP (yet another phone producer)?

Does anyone test PHONE network connectivity or test PHONE voice quality anymore?

As long as a phone is SHINY, small, light, and run programs to delight the feckless surely it will be a winning selling product…

Soon the generation who inflicted contraceptives on society will in turn receive the similar gift of euthanaia. … iTards and useful idiots first.. then second generation iTards.. then public school employees and overseers…

I want a slimmer motorola e815.  HTC has one passable PHONE, but I am not interested in paying a $60/month verizon FINE.  One cannot opt-out of the verizon penalty fee.  I want to use the PHONE as a PHONE and nothing more (than the occasional SMS).

edit: even eWeek doesn’t bother to review PHONES  as a PHONE per se... seems like eWeek has moved to the iTards column

Where are the QUALITY PHONES????

edit:  droid “does” stuff but how well IS it a PHONE?
