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.

The only thing that surprises me in this case is that something like this hasn't happened sooner.

Android platform has been here for quite some time, and only now an app comes along that does something kinda naughty?
Hmmm...

Those Android app devs must be the most honest folks around.
