[maemo-users] Someone has tried Devicescape?

I downloaded it, and installed it.  Didn't find it immediately useful to 
my situation, so I turned it off, thinking that I'd try it again later 
when I was able to get them specific information for the wifi login page 
at work, so that they could support it.

And it turned itself back on when I next powered up.

And I turned it off again, and unchecked it in the Navigation control panel.

And it turned itself back on when I next powered up, having also 
re-enabled itself on the Navigation control panel.

So I did it again, in case I had missed a step.

And it did it again.

So I uninstalled it.  And wont ever use it again.

Anything that decides to over-ride my decision to not use it is a 
complete piece of crap.  On the basis of its viral nature alone, I 
heavily recommend against using it.  Who knows what other nefarious 
things its doing under the hood (and, yes, I consider "re-enabling 
itself", after the user specifically and directly disabled it, to be 
"nefarious").  Or if it's not doing it now, what things the company 
might add to it once you're comfortable with it over-riding your 
settings for you.
