Apps are requesting microphone permission that don't need it. We've got voice remote controls, etc. I hate that. I'd disconnect the mic if I didn't need the darn thing to make phone calls. At least it's no longer all or nothing.

You want to have ads? Fine. You're 100% responsible for everything--the code they run, making sure a federal privacy policy put together by reasonable people is maintained, respecting do not track settings, etc.

          I had one program whine and complain when I turned off certain permissions, so it didn't last very long on my phone. I don't think Firefox was too unreasonable. I'd have to check permissions, but it... more

            I know my bank's app for a long time was just a web browser shortcut wrapped as an app. (Refused to install it). I would imagine many others would do more or less the same as a cheap way to get an... more

              I guess it's easy if you want to talk to someone, but what a pain it is otherwise. Some sites can access the login cookie and assume I'm logged in to their precious steaming pile of doggie doo-doo. I ... more
