Which sort of begs the question of why bother. I mean the apps are a couple bucks. Hell, people piss more money than that buying a Slurpee at 7-11 that lasts less than 15 minutes.

It's a game of chicken and the government wants to gain face by challenging Google. They will work something out.
Frankly, in my own limited experience, the only people I know here who buy the apps anyway are foreigners. All the Taiwanese I know who have Android phones only use free apps. I realize that's not a large sample, but just saying.....
