@Mighty BOB: Total agreement. This is pure BS. Customers should not have to put up with this crap in the name of "security".

There's no way it is critical for them to be able to manage installed applications on my device. PCs are much more vulnerable to viruses, backdoors, trojans, etc, but a conscientous user has no problem managing one without MS or Apple deleting user installed applications and software. Managing a phone is the same only easier.

Mighty BOB!

... Really?  The ability for them to remotely delete things is scary as hell.  One day Orwell is going to be right I think.. This is just a baby step.
