    Google Activates Android "Kill Switch," Zaps Useless Apps

    "This week the engineers at Google remotely activated the so-called Android "kill switch," a technology that allows the company to remotely remove applications installed on users' phones."

    Google Activates Android "Kill Switch," Zaps Useless Apps

    Hmmmm, if I was an NRA member I'd say that this is the first step in an ongoing secretive plot to take our apps away. But I'm not . . . .

    Gosh, Amazon caught hell for a similar stunt. And Apple? Will they pull this crap regularly. Will Google continue their 'transparent' app deleting actions?

    It's both a good, and a bad thing depending on your view of 'Security'
