Default Re: Application permissions in Android runtime

I agree control is necessary and the phone manufacturers are moving to control virtually every inch of the phone. Sadly many people do not realize the apps and other items on the new phones do nothing except harvest information for marketing purposes. Some people even think the pop up ads and news items are great. the GPS on some ( I-Phone and others ) that tracks them even if they think it's off allows for targeted adds.
Ever see an ad pop up after talking about something?
Ever wonder why ?
