    Does anyone know how to stop receiving notifications saying 'you have won (1) iphone' blah blah blah? Basically an android user is chosen in *name of area* although each time i get one its a different one and you answer a question (which subscribes you to £4.50 a week, in very small print! luckily i saw it before i clicked) and you're entered. I've got free apps which could be the reason i'm getting the ads but i don't want to have to delete them

    Tax on Minecraft but not on Fieldrunners.

    Maybe an EU thing.

    No, you can't use Paypal on the Market (it uses Google Checkout).

    But yes, apps are tied to your Google Account.

    Careful that your card/bank doesn't charge you for abroad spending. I hear lots of people being charged £1 per transaction.

    I feel less dirty about my pirating now that I've spent 23p in the Market.

    You fell for Google's ploy though. The whole promotion is probably a drive to get more people to add their card details and see how easy it is to buy something, so that they're more likely to next time :p:

    I've only pirated a very few android apps - either to try them if they were expensive or because the android market wouldn't let me buy them.

    Altogether probably spent like £10-£15. I don't see that as enough to bother pirating - and now with this promotion!

    I think I'll get BW.

    Been using it forever, seems a bit **** not to have paid for it.


    Are the devs getting full value for it from Google?

    Do any of you ever find yourself being forced to reboot, because your phone gets really sluggish?

    Yeah, I'm hoping flight control comes up. I loved that game in my iPod but I'm not paying £1.80 for it again, it was 60p on the app store

    OnLive is now available for Android (and iOS)

    And even more than with the desktop version, it blows me away at how incredible this tech is. Really. Freaking. Unbelievable.

    I gotta say that playing Batman Arkham Asylum @720p with an Intel GMA chipset, 1GB RAM and a 1.6x2 processor has been the technological highlight of the year. It was flawless. Absolutely flawless. I was amazed by how well OnLive works.

    Yeh, it blew me away enough on a powerful desktop, but to see it on a phone is mindboggling.
