@Steve Davies 3 - Re: Goibg to Jail?

I'm sorry, Steve, but I have to get you down from your high horses because Android poses no problem to mass surveillance lovers. On my beautiful shiny Samsung Galaxy S6 an application I want to shutdown (because I don't use it) will always be restarted and the button to disable it is greyed out. More than that, I disabled notifications from this application and now it sends me notifications to alert me that it can't send me notifications. My wife's LG pesters her to download and install Evernote and there's no way to tell it to shove off. This is to prove that you have absolutely no control over Android, somebody else has so it can't protect you like Linux would do. Linux trusts and obeys you while Android is not, even though it runs a Linux kernel.
