Who did that? I see you at the back, Jones Minor...
"Online software bazaars – such as Apple's App Store and Google Play – need to claim responsibility for "dead applications" and notify people when their programs have been revoked or removed."
OK - heck, I might even agree.
But then it morphs to:
"When these evil programs are found and thrown out of stores, they should be thrown out of devices, too, it's recommended."
If said 'throwing out' is by the device owner/ user? Absolutely. But if said throwing is done remotely by the App Store owner, or device provider? Without, perhaps, the device owner's approval or knowledge, because the relevant OS, software or device access protocol has been modified to permit such actions? Woah there, Nellie.
After all, it might be said to be one small step for an App, and from that small step no giant leap to data. From 'Provider X deleted 'my' (don't get me started on 'you didn't buy it - only a license to use it') Apps' to 'Apple ate my music!' Streaming jukebox wipes 122GB – including muso's original tracks' (it's here on El Reg - feel free to find it, read it and form your own opinions).
