Even with full disk encryption it's only a matter of time.

Of course it's only a matter of time, but so is the heat death of the universe, and neither that nor breaking 128 bit AES are happening any time soon. You're also implying that I can't go in and modify fastboot or recovery on my phone to prevent it from being pulled down, too.

Unfortunately Linode bills for the whole month and refunds you the proration, so you're still stuck with that amount as credit. If you have a full-time VM running and spin one up for a little bit this is fine, but if I really need something short-term I just use EC2 due to hourly billing.

There was no 2.0 official release? What the heck did my original Droid come with then? It was API level 5, and was quickly replaced with 2.0.1 (API level 6). 2.0 came out in November 2009, 2.1 didn't come out till January 2010. 2.0 doesn't have a dessert name as far as I can tell, though.
