    Why Apples control of the Appstore is a bad thing...

    Android App Security Risk

    Mmmm, so two choices:

    1) Closed source Apple: no one, net even me, can make calls on the phone

    or

    2) Open source Google: anybody in the world can make calls from my phone anytime they like.

    Android is so clearly superior I'll be selling my iPhone 4 on fleebay over the weekend and buying an HTC droid on Monday.

    I'm let's look on the bright side - I might not be able to listen to any of my Music anymore but atleast I can make phone calls (so long as some chump from indonnesia isn't using the line).

    I got emailed that link earlier in the week, what it doesn't mention is that there are free AV apps available on Android, and that every app declares the access it requires before you install it: if you don't like the permissions it needs, you don't install it.
