Launcher and Widget architecture questions

 How does the launcher ensure that the entire launcher (home screen)
does not crash if a widget that the user has added to their home
screen crashes.  Let's say the widget is pulling in really large
bitmaps that cause an Out of Memory exception.  Will this just crash
the widget, or will this crash the entire Launcher?  How does the code
protect itself from a malicious or badly coded widget?

1. NullPointerException with OnTouch

I have been getting some NullPointerExceptions ( $7.onTouch() ) and I
am not sure how to fix it.  I am using the same logic in other
programs without an issue.  Any help is appreciated.


2. Android Market Abusive developers...

I currently have an application that does something useful.  I'm
currently overwhelmed by the amount of MATURE wallpaper apps being
submitted BY ONE DEVELOPER!  Particularly ASIAN developers!  It's not
just one developer doing this but way too many!  The nature of these
repeated apps  are they contain mature content even when previewing
the app screen shots and they contain two pictures.

Here is a small list of a few developers ruining the Android Market!

Dev: background
Number of apps in the market: 11

Dev: maike.TT
Number of apps in the market: +50

Dev: Creature Apps
Number of apps in the market: +50

So the thing is yeah they have a right to put apps in the market, but
I guess the solution is or create a MATURE category or enforce them to
put it on the Entertainment category or a new wallpaper category.
