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.

I agree with this. It would be nice if they included a detailed explanation for their intent to remove the application as well on that prompt.

I hope in the future they do they and also add a checkbox in the settings to completely disable the feature but default it to ON.
