What percentage of G2 (or any smartphone) customers will mess with the OS? I have no idea, but IF it's very small (I'm thinking less than 1%), then for 99% of customers, if their phone gets rooted, it's almost certainly a Very Bad Thing.
In which case, the OS reasserting itself is a feature. One that most customers would likely appreciate.
So are the companies involved being evil, or do they just have a different perspective?
I'm not saying they don't have other, more evil intentions. But I don't think this issue proves that they do.
