Mod parent up. Software people need to understand this: users cannot be asked to do "deep reasearch" and "understand permissions", they do not have the time, and they paid good money for their device that should simply work.
And we can say they are "noobs" or "stoopid" all we want, and do not deserve nice things, but the reality is that examining permissions is right now really user-unfriendly, and actually not possible: I can easily make a program that requires map access and being able to send a data message for the fun little location game I am selling, and there is no way even the smartest permissions-examiner now knows I have made a remotely-activated stalking device.
Users will vote with their wallets to get phones where they can simply get their stuff done and get some fun out of them without having the feeling every step could be quicksand. So as phone ecosystem manufacturer you have the choice of don't let crap happen on the phone, or watch your consumer pay your competitor for a phone where crap can't happen. And to make crap not happen, you will have to only allow safe programs on the phone. And as parent shows, this means a closed store.
