    ...if anything, this is a stimulus for all developers and hackers to unite and target Motorola !
    It won't take long !

    I agree with you all. What makes the Moto folks think they're any better than the rest?

    Ahh, and the Verizon beast shows its head.

    Does everyone remember a few years ago (7-10) when every single phone (not smartphone) had some OS that you could always upgrade from the manufacturer (motorola, ericksson, etc..) but Verizon was the only company that would not allow you to re-flash their manufactured OS (which was the regular phone OS with custom themes, software injections, etc...etc..). Verizon was notorious for this. In this process, they managed to reduce the battery life by 30-60 minutes.

    Now that motorola seems to be in a deep partnership, they are managing to take a free open source system and screw it up beyond believe.

    I am not too familiar with moto, but any carrier or manufacturer that tells you to buy elsewehere is cruising for problems. I would agree on the developer theory. There are alot of people out there building changing and hacking os and apps. If they want to be better than the rest, they better change there way of thinking, or at least keep their mouths shut

    In today's business world "what you may think, you better not say."
    With Twitter and FB it's difficult not to be tempted to express your thoughts.
    And then wham! Not only in this, but also with private "thoughts" available on these social media!
    Employers (and lawyers) are having a field day...

    As as I am concerned, once I have paid for the device I own it, and all that ties me to any thing is the service provider. That's it. that is like saying that I can't paint my car after it is fully paid for, which is bunk!!

    Can't agree more. Then again, ATT's CEO said that "it's ok that some people will leave for verizon".
    (he was quoted saying that)

    I'm seriously thinking about getting a Nexus 1. Only true open source device.

    Thanks for the update PDX. But embracing the hacker community ? Not so much...
    This is a diplomatic statement to calm agitated waters, but their (Motorola) policy will not change now or ever...
