I feel like I should be posting here more often, but Google+ has become a glorified bookmarks (+1) site to me lately.

Yes. YES.
CyanogenMod App Store

I've been bouncing this idea around for a while now, and it seems like an even better idea now, given my recent brush with this problem: we need an App Store for root apps. We also need an app store for apps that are getting shut down for no good reason, other than carrier, or some random corporation doesn't like it. [1]

+CyanogenMod has a huge following now. In fact, we are about to pass 1 million unique, active, user installs. http://stats.cyanogenmod.com/
This is, pardon my french, fucking huge.

As the project grows, so do our server requirements, hardware requirements, etc. One of the ideas I brought up to +Steve Kondik was to have a built in app store in +CyanogenMod, independent of the Android Market. A portion of the sales from the App Store could go towards funding the CyanogenMod project. [2]

What are your opinions on this topic? Would you users actually use a CM App Store over the Android Market, etc? [3]



[1] Apps removed from the Market includes, one click root apps, emulators, tether apps, Visual Voicemail apps, and more. These are all completely legal (Nintendo emulators are fine, ROMs are NOT, there is a distinction).

[2] I've actually approached Amazon about bundling their AppStore in CM if they gave CM a cut of the sales. But they brushed me off, saying that was something they could talk about in a few months :p

[3] There is no reason that it would be a CM only app store, of course, any ROM could include it.

Shit, have I really not posted here in 4 months? I suppose I should clean this thing up.

I need recommendations for an anti-smudge protector for the Asus Transformer. Any suggestions? 

Just realized I've had my shirt on inside-out AND backwards for several hours. One of those days.

My mind = blown

So when are we gonna get G+ share links in Google Reader? The Buzz ones are kind of out-of-date...

This is the best simple G+ extension I've seen so far.
Found an excellent Google Plus extension for Chrome: "Replies and more for Google+" Seems like a must for any Plus user, at least until Google implements these features.
