For those wondering how to get Barnacle since the stupid Android Market says "this item is not available for your carrier," a big F-U to AT&T on that one, just root your device and allow side loaded apps, then from your computer, go to:
and download the direct link.... You'll have to manually update it though (if necessary, works great as is on the current 0.6.7 version), because even with using Appbrain, it shows up in the apps sync'd, but will not open the market app to update, when necessary.
