I really hope CM gets more funding to make 2014 a great year for tech.

I love Cyanogen, but I just don't see the point in this. Another thing, I'm curious as to whether or not phones that ship with Cyanogen will be rooted. Unroofed cyanogen defeats the point of getting Cyanogen.

"We feel that the existing devices you can currently buy aren't really designed for the end user. They're essentially designed as cash registers for the companies that make them."

As opposed to CM who says that CM is

"capable of pushing your phone much harder. CyanogenMod and it’s team hold no responsibility to any damage caused to your phone, loss of earnings as a result of damaging your phone or anything else that is connected to the development of this rom."

The day CM went official is the start of their decline. Already they lost the focal camera app.
