Devs with paid apps -- check your enabled countries

 The Android Market team moved some countries from the first list to
the "overflow" list.  But, since there appears to be no actual testing
done by them, when the countries were moved they now appear as not
being available to see your app.

 For me, only Croatia, Serbia and Kazakhstan were marked as one of the 
'except for:' countries. Anyway, strange behavior by the AM. :)

 Yeah.... I've been noticing the same thing.  Has happened 2 or 3 times to me
now.  Thank you Android Market Team!  :-)

 Thanks for the tip! Had indeed some of the new countries with no
amount filled in, so probably those countries didn't see my app.

 No, that's different.  No amount filled in means that they will see
pricing in US$.  I was referring to the checkboxes in the list at the
bottom.

1. Can we set the Nexus S Tag Id?

I am experimenting with an NFC tag reader, and I've found that when I have 
NFC turned on on my Nexus S, the tag reader is able to read my phone. The 
problem is that when the reader reads my phone it is detecting a 4 byte Id 
that changes on each read. 
I'm investigating the possibility of an application for my organization that 
requires that the Id be static. What exactly is going on here with the Id 
that's being read from my phone, and is it possible to make that Id static, 
or even set it to a specified value?

I ran some tests.

I configured my app with ACCURACY_FINE_LOCATION permission and with a
criteria of FINE_LOCATION.  In that situation:

1) If the GPS and Network are both enabled it will return GPS as best
   provider.

2) If only Network is enabled it will return Network as best provider.

The above makes sense and is logical.  But it doesn't solve the problem
of preferring to use Network in lieu of GPS when both are available.

If, however, you have ACCURACY_FINE_LOCATION permission but use a
criteria of COARSE_LOCATION, then the following will be true:

1) If the GPS and Network are both enabled it will return Network as
   best provider.

2) If only Network is enabled it will return Network as best provider.

3) If only GPS is enabled it will return GPS as best provider.

The conclusion: in order to use GPS -- even just as a fallback for when
Network is not enabled -- you need ACCURACY_FINE_LOCATION.  In that
case, if your criteria is COARSE_LOCATION you will pick up Network if
available instead of GPS but it still use GPS if it has no other choice.
