I have been a beta tester for a very complex software program for almost 10 years now, and this NDA stuff is not only real, but, imperitive to the developers.
I can tell you that if I, in any way, publicaaly divulged information of any kind that violated the NDA agreement, I'd be kicked off the beta team so fast, I wouldnt even know the cyber-door got locked behind me.
Seriously - ANY information that is covered under NDA shouldn't even be discussed publically, no matter what one's role is.
Oh, and for the record, I, too, hope that there are camera and microphone api's coming in webos 2.0. Very cool apps could follow, and the app catalog would certainly begin to grow in exponential fashion!
