Anyone got any problems with us signing this? (cleaned up
a bit from their Word doc, but didn't have time to really get
it into proper HTML). It's the agreement to be an AvantGo
partner (ie get an evolt channel onto PDAs)

The only iffy bit on 1st glance is over revenues from advertising
on our AvantGo channel - any revenues we get (and we're not
getting any, right?) we have to give AG 25%.
