 ow about charging for the apps using a "service model"

You could name you apps like

com.foobar.theapp2009q1
com.foobar.theapp2009q2
com.foobar.theapp2009q3 com.foobar.theapp2009q4

When version X expires, the app can launch an Intent to point the user to
the newer version. This way it should be seamless.

This model should work for some apps (the "service" type, such as
dating/matchmaking, accessing real state info database, etc) but not others
(such as games, which people think once they paid they own the right to it
forever).

If you provide a good service, I think people won't mind paying $0.49 per
quarter for it ...

  don't see any clause in the Developer Distribution Agreement against
subscriptions. Especially, in this case, the user is buying 4 apps with
different package names (one for each quarter of the year). As far as the
market is concerned, there are 4 different apps.

I think the carrier will just be happier as long as the revenue keeps
coming. It's only if you get paid for the app in an alternative store,
they'd be mad.

1. why it always complain execve("/system/bin/alsamixer", ["alsamixer"], [/* 10 vars */]) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Hi All,

I have susscessfully run the android on my target board.

I before cross-complied the strace and it works both in linux and in
android environment.

But now I build alsamixer using the same toolchain, it can works in
the android linux, but when I
chroot /mnt/rootfs /init , entering into the android world, then in
the android command line, the alsamixer always failed with "No such
file or directory"

I use strace(which is built by myself) to debug, the following is the
message:

# strace -ff -F -tt -s 200 -o /sdcard/tmp alsamixer
strace: exec: No such file or directory
# cat /sdcard/tmp
02:24:29.334715 execve("/system/bin/alsamixer", ["alsamixer"], [/* 10
vars */]) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
02:24:29.344909 write(2, "strace: exec", 12) = 12
02:24:29.346506 write(2, ": ", 2)       = 2
02:24:29.347776 write(2, "No such file or directory", 25) = 25
02:24:29.349132 write(2, "\n", 1)       = 1
02:24:29.350353 io_submit(1, -1344068532, {...} <unfinished ... exit
status 1>

Anyone can give me some light on this?
