Looking at the source, it seems to connect to a hardcoded Internet URL 
by default (nice music there, btw :-) ). This might be a problem for 
some deplyments with weak access to Internet, and is considered a 
security issue in Debian: Just opening the activity registers your IP at 
the web server running at that IP.

I suggest setting that URL in some config file (to be easier and more 
obvious for various deplyments to override (for the Debian packaging we 
might add a so-called "debconf question" allowing "Debian Pure Blends" 
and other derivatives to override/suppress it without even repackaging).

Also, if it invokes the URL automatially at startup (I have not yet 
actually played with this activity) then please consider either not 
doing so or instead include and use a (small) tune for that purpose.
