Google While it's currently cool to love Google's Android and hate Apple's iOS, especially because of the massive difference in philosophy (open vs. closed), Google still retains a fair amount of control over the Android Market. This was demonstrated this week Google employed its remote kill switch for two Android Market applications, removing them from all Android devices on which they were installed.

1. Market is not a feature of Android. It is installed by oems/operators if they have an agreement with Google. So you're totally responsible for using device with Market - no one forces you.
2. Even if you have Market you can freely opt-out by not agreeing to its terms.
3. Market is only operating while synchronization is turned on.

These points mean that you have TOTAL CONTROL over your Android device. If you choose Market up and running - it is you concise choice.

So stop blaming Google an start reading eulas BEFORE using products and features.
