Any chance this means that mobile OS and mobile app developers might actually start setting up permissions structures that allow apps to function with the minimum necessary privileges?
The permissions framework on Android (and iOS) seems like a reasonable start, but when the norm for a flashlight app is to have full network access and full camera access, it becomes painfully obvious that we as users are not leveraging the frameworks to protect ourselves. If more people cared about Facebook asking for write access to your first-born's soul, they (and other app developers) might have some incentive to build apps that work within the narrowest ruleset possible.
Instead, we have the current disaster, where my stopwatch app requires full network access, Flood-It has full network access *and* access to the contents of the phone's USB storage, etc. Set up an API to allow ads to get pulled in without granting full network access, limit the access the apps have, and it won't matter if the NSA can access your Angry Birds game.
