Then don't buy 'em. That's the way the free market works right? You can sell something for whatever you want, and if people buy it, you make some money. If you don't like the price for the product, don't buy it. :?

But don't hack on the guy for trying to make some money off his efforts - at least he's trying to break the stereotype of "everything is free" on the Internet that so many people adhere to...

The book shows how to make animated today screens. The plan is to have the millions Macromedia Flash developers embrace this application and make tons of great animated themes. They can give them away for free, they can sell them, it's up to them.

So I'm not the only one that though charging $5 for today screen themes was kinda iffy?
$5 for at least 10-20 themes , that's less than 0.50 per theme is most cases. ringtones, backgrounds, pocket pc themes, ebooks are all things that can and should be charged for if they have value to the user, no one forces anyone to buy anything. there are tons of free things out there too, if that serves your needs please use those. but i think you'll find the prices are fair, the content is great and there is a market for this.

I didn't? I wasn't suggesting that I was forced into it Jason. That was my opinion. :?

i, for one, am really looking forward to this book. i've been waiting for it to come out for like what seems forever.

and for the record, Philip - http://www.flashenabled.com - and Bill - http://www.pocketpcflash.net - are making great contributions to the pocket pc flash scene, so a 'thank you' would be more in order than some of what i've read here in this topic.
