jwz's rant was absurd for a number of reasons, but on this one especially. Palm has all but endorsed PreCentral's homebrew market, and getting it going on the phone is dead simple. There are no restrictions on the phone at all, and no DMCA violations to worry about. Palm will certainly not call you a terrorist for using your phone as you please, either.
