Submission + - Can I Make My Android Phone Lie? 1

Nom du Keyboard writes: After the Pandora personal information tracking fiasco (I wondered why that app always started every time I rebooted, even when I hadn't used it for weeks), and now having yet another app (today it's Layar) ask in its latest update for access to even more personal information that it absolutely doesn't need to do its job, I'd like to know: Can I make my Android phone just outright lie to these applications that don't need this personal information to start with? After all, it is MY phone.
