 Are you trying to purchase your own app? I got the same error when I
did, but not when I purchased someone else's.

 Yup, it appears as though you can't buy your own app!  :)

Android Market: server error when "authorizing credit card"

 Heh... I guess it would create some problems if you tried to purchase
an app with your own account for, say, 1 dollar... So your account is
then $-1.00, Google gets $0.30 and you get the other $0.70, bringing
your own account up to $-0.30. Then if you return the app you would be
refunded $1.00, and Google would take away your $0.70 profit... and
you would be back to $1.00... but it would probably spawn some
infinite loop and all hell would break loose on the Android Market (oh
wait, it already has).


Suggestion: Displaying the message "You may not purchase your own
goods from the Market" would be much more informative than "A server
error has occurred." (Thus avoiding the developer hitting Retry a
bunch of times!) :-)

item?  Thanks.

2. How to store a hashmap in the listview?

Currently I can store an ArrayAdapter in the ListView widget, like so:

        private ArrayAdapter<String> mAdapter;
        private ArrayList<String> mPresets = new ArrayList<String>
();

        mAdapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, mPresets);
        setListAdapter(mAdapter);


However, I'd like to plop a key/value pair onto it.  Is it possible?
Like a HashMap for instance?  Otherwise, I am always having to do
lookups on the selected list item.
