comment How can I prevent services from running in the background?
I suppose you and I are both just speaking off the cuff? I don't have any real numbers to back this up, but I don't think it's anywhere near 80%. My instinct is that on this topic specifically, users are much more suspicious than developers are lazy. It's actually hard work to create background services on the developer's part, even lazy ones. Also, I should rephrase - my app (Congress) doesn't need background services to function, but it does require it for some functionality. Both the functionality and the service are disabled by default.

comment Good non-developer Android emulator?
Yeah, you don't need to be a developer to install the Android SDK and run the emulator. Most of it's done through a GUI, too.

comment Is there an Android phone without proprietary code?
It voids your warranty, but is easy to install, and awesome. I've done it before, and it's easy to revert back if needed, too. It also meets all your requirements. I'd consider it.

Yeah, the Gmail app definitely supports direct APK installation if the APK is an attachment.

comment How can I turn off the “allow automatic updating” for an app?
That's extremely strange - gary's answer is right for me on my Nexus One. The checkbox is always there for me. Which app are you talking about?

comment Any reason not to allow automatic updating for an app?
This isn't an answer really, but it may help you to know that if an app's permissions change, it will not auto-update - you'll have to manually update. So don't worry about not noticing an app make a power grab or something.

comment How to sync my Facebook contacts?
Your phone has to have the official Facebook app (or perhaps some 3rd-party app supports this too, not sure) installed.

comment Can I hide a program from ongoing activities in the notification bar?
Gentle Alarm probably does not run constantly in the background, but rather schedules an "alarm" with the system for that app to be woken up at the proper time, which then sounds the actual alarm. My answer is specifically about apps that run constantly in the background (such as music apps).
