 Why can't Datepicker dialog automatically figure out that there are no
30 and 31 in Feb? Should not this be considered as a bug in DatePicker

The DatePicker dialog's 'set' button can be pushed without telling
user 'this is an invalid date' -- instead, it quietly convert 4/31 to
5/1; 2/30 to 3/2 after you push the button. I think an idea behavior
should be as following:
-- when you currently have "1 31 2009" and push the 'up' button on
'1' (month), you should get "2 28 2009" shown on the three elements

I thought to build a customized subclass, but a lot of the fields are
private and not accessible from subclass, anyone thought of the same

1. Web App Support

The Android platform does a good job of supporting applications. There
are many tools for application developers to get their apps on
people's phones, make the applications easy to find, and manage the
running applications. The market is a great way for users to find new
applications; users have the application dock where they can launch
the application; the platform will allow users to run multiple apps at
the same time with the user being able to switch between the apps.

Why doesn't Android have the same support for web apps?

Google has many times stated that they prefer people to develop web
applications. Google spends a lot of their development time on mobile
web apps. So why does the Android support applications better than web
applications. Why as a developer can't I put my web app into the
market? Why can't the users launch web apps "downloaded" from the
market in their application dock? The app could open the browser and
the user would be directed to the entry of the application.

With more support for web apps on a Google platform, the gap between
an Android application and a web app would be narrowed a great deal.
It seems that many developers are creating a shell app that hosts
their mobile site. This works, but if there needs to be changes in the
shell app (i.e. new authentication) then they have to have users
update the shell app instead of doing all development on the web side.
It seems with all of Google's push for web apps, they could have
better support on Android to support web apps.

Google could also add better support by having the Google search
engine index mobile web apps. Web app developers could add a meta tag
indicating the support for mobile web. Google could then index this
content and provide a search for mobile apps within the regular Google
search. This would allow web developers to write an app on the web and
not have to submit their app to each different phone marketplace.
Users would be able to search and find web apps that were not easy to
find before. It could be the market place for all phones.


2. WiFi Regulatory Domain Channels

I have a quick question.
I'm a beta tester working in a contract position on an Android device
running 1.6

What I wanted to know is if it is legal to ship a device in the US
that has access to be able to change the Regulatory Domain to channels

I'm being told that it is and isn't yet being shown no proof. I ask
because the device I am testing has access to it and so does my Dev G1
and my T-Mobile G1.

A link proving it is legal would be great if someone can provide.
