MeanM50, do you mean it's OK for them to track you and access to your data just because you don't sell nukes? As far as we know, they could even be recording our conversations, reviewing e-mails (wait, gmail has been doing that since day 1 anyway) and check where we were at any given moment? I think "I don't do anything bad, so they can track me" is not a strong enough defense to ignore this. Not everyone is tech savvy enough to root their phones.
If it runs android, it can be rooted. Period.

I do understand that the principal is deplorable and I don't personally think it's right, but I also don't think it's anything to worry much about.

Oh yeah...and yes...JUST about everyone can root their phone...people with no thumbs or people that can't follow instructions may have a hard time...but it's really pretty straight forward.
