About run Instrumentation

 Hi all

I like to ask something about running Instrumentation.

By logs, I found that there is a uninstall process before the start
process when running the instrumentation.

Is this behavior normal?

For example, if I start the instrumentation of music

DEBUG/ActivityManager(51): Uninstalling process com.android.music

INFO/ActivityManager(51): Start proc com.android.music for added
application com.android.music: pid=241 uid=10006 gids={3003}

1. Collecting opinions about Android for an article

Hi Androids,
I'm an italian technical journalist and I'm writing an article
about this platform for an italian paper-based magazine devoted
to Linux.

I would be happy to collect a few opinions about Google Android
from the people who actually use it and from the people who write
code for it.

In particular, I would be happy to hear your comments about the
following issues.

1) What do you love of Android? What do you hate of it?

2) How do you compare it with others similar Linux-based
platforms, like Mobilinux, OpenMoko, LiMo, Qtopia, etc.
What's better? What's worse?

3) How do you compare Android with non-Linux platforms,
like Symbian, iPhone and Windows Mobile?

4) How do you feel at programming it? Is it friendly?
Is it hard? Is it powerfull? Is it limited?

Of course, I will be happy to hear your spontaneous
comments, as well.

I will NOT publish your name or any other personal information
in my article. I will just cite your words.

You can contact me privately, as well. Just use the
"send a private message" function of the web forum.

Thanks you all for your attention

2. Device unique ID, other than getDeviceId()?

I need a unique ID for each phone, just enough to distinguish it from 
any other Android phone. In theory, TelephonyManager#getDeviceId() would 
be fine, except that it requires READ_PHONE_DATA as a permission, and 
that seems overkill.

The catch is that I need this ID to be cross-application; two 
applications on the same device need to get the same ID.

So, two questions:

1. Is there some other API in Android-land that returns a unique value 
for each phone, that I just haven't found yet? One that does not require 
any special permission to access? I even considered a MAC address, but 
Android doesn't offer NetworkInterface#getHardwareAddress(), unfortunately.

2. If the answer to #1 is "no, silly", is there a spot (that I just 
haven't found yet) where I could tuck a world-readable UUID that could 
serve this purpose? It doesn't seem like there's any good 
cross-application storage spot outside of the SD card, and I can't count 
on all devices having one.

Thanks in advance!
