>So you want Google to wall up their garden with higher walls than Apple?
I think what might be desirable to el reg's audience are FLOSS repos for android.
You can keep your trivia apps, I just want vlc or mplayer, amarok firefox, kmail etc on a phone.
I trust those guys more than I trust google.
Alternatively a system of shims between apps and resources: a GPS fuzzer/usage verifier, a camera/mic use verifier, a contact data filter.
