It sounds like Google downloaded John McAfee's Dcentral 1
(I jest)
You guys should review his new app though
It lets you see what each app can do without your knowledge like....
track you, turn on your camera and or mic, read all your emails, etc

It rates your apps according to the threat they pose to the user

Available at Google Play and Future Tense Central
(FREE)

and now....
another message from John McAfee

What Google needs to give all Android users is the ability to stop Apps from auto starting up & blocking them from connecting to the internet. Also, we need a way to revoke or block an Apps permissions, such as Sending TXTs to all your contacts without you knowing about it. Getting sick & tired of my friends Apps sending me txt's that I should install their crappy apps. & Lastly, Any app that annoys you to rate it 5 stars while you are using or, or wont allow you to use it before you rate it 5 stars should be banned from Google Play.

Did maximumpc beef up its security too? I just realized that I no longer see comments that start with something like "my roomate's aunt makes $83/hr on the laptop." or did they just lose interest in mpc?
