Journal rfc1394's Journal: Google bans tethering app from Android Market 1

In an article in Infoworld, apparently Google's supposed openness has ended, as it has banned an application from its Android Market. "WiFi Tether for Root Users, an application developed by Seth Lemons and a partner, has been banned from the market for violating the developer distribution agreement. The application lets users connect their G1 Android phones via Wi-Fi to their laptops and then access the Internet from the laptop using the phone's cellular connection." Apparently this functionality violates T-Mobile's terms of service. The Android Market was apparently very open, the only requirement being to submit a $25 fee to be included, as opposed to the more stringent requirements for Apple's store.
