Banned Apps for Sale

According to TechCrunch, an independent developer is working on a store for apps which have been banned from the official Android Market, the app store for Google's Android smart phone. These include modified versions of the Android OS itself, which users who have "rooted" their Androids often install to give themselves more ability to customize their phones' software. This, of course, raises the question of why users who purportedly own their Android must go through these back channels and void their warranties simply in order to have full administrative control of the device.
