Submission + - Google's Android Market Policy: Screw You, I Got Mine! (tumblr.com)

bornagainpenguin writes: Does Google have an obligation past its 15min refund policy to ensure app developers aren't playing fast and loose in its Play store? Googlegotmine sure seems to think so as he recounts a recent altercation over a developer who removed an application from the store and renamed it, effectively making customers purchase it twice if they want to use it. Is it really Google's policy not to care what happens after an app has been purchased in their store? If so, why should anyone buy anything from them ever again? Why not pirate?

Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Independently Produced TV Shows?

bornagainpenguin writes: Slashdot recently reported that Stargate Universe was canceled, taking with it yet another of the vanishingly smaller network Sci-Fi shows to watch on TV. In the comments of that story someone mentioned Pioneer One as an alternative to traditional network series. I'm downloading it now and looking forward to seeing it, but I'm wondering what else is available that is independently produced and has a greater emphasis on plot and actually finishing the story?

I'm already a fan of efforts like Batman: City of Scars, Starwreck: In the Pirkinning, and Star Trek: Phase II so I know that great things are possible, I just don't know where to find them!

Can Slashdot help by making some recommendations?
