 I find that it can be a bit slow.   I feel that the "zoom" icons and the box
thingy are a waste of screen real estate - that and they tend to get in the
way at the worst time.  I use it mainly to read up on the news, it kind of
OK for that (wait for page to load then read, wait for next page ...).
Attempting to shop for anything with it tends to be tedious so I avoid it.
I really like the fact that I can click on a phone number and it will
instantly call it.  I use this feature a lot.

 I tend to use Steel for most things since it uses all the screen real
estate and has better zoom handling and other popup menu options.
Steel runs at the same speed as the built in browser of course which
is ok, but would be more ok if it was x times faster (where x was any
number > 1 and preferably 1000 :-)  hey I can dream)

1. Is it legal to customize and publish the built-in applications?

Like the Alarm Clock, Calculator, etc.

I see that the source is available at :

For example, the alarm clock I'm going to modify will "look exactly
the same" as the built-in one, but there'll be a lot more functions.

Is it legal to extend the functionality of the Alarm Clock and publish
it as paid application?

I'm new to the open-souce stuff. I believe it's 99% doable but still
want to ask just to make sure.

Thanks in advance.


2. Android 1.5 (Cupcake) permissions on Location/GPS settings

I'd like to express my displeasure that Android's latest update (which
I didn't bother getting until T-Mobile sent it out) took away
applications' ability to turn on and off Location settings.

I had been using a PAID app called Power Manager to automatically turn
on and off GPS locations when I plugged my phone into my car charger.
Useful for obvious reasons.

Were it a privacy concern, Android could simply display it as a
permission when an app is installed. Instead the feature is gone

Not happy about this at all. I feel like Google hijacked my phone and
took away some of its functionality. What gives?
