Feeling Upset? Look At Some Meat 155

Meshach writes "A study out of Canada claims that seeing meat actually calms a person down. From the article: 'Contrary to expectations, a McGill University researcher has discovered that seeing meat makes people significantly less aggressive. Frank Kachanoff, who studies evolution at the university’s department of psychology, had initially thought the presence of meat would provoke bloodlust, believing the response would have helped our primate ancestors hunt. But in fact, his research showed the reverse is true.'" I can see all the "Make Steak, Not War!" protest signs already.

It has nothing to do with sandboxes or security models. Nor does this have anything to do with Google not "screening" applications before they go on Market.

This has to do with the fact that the API allows applications to toggle this setting. The decision to expose that can (and should, in my opinion) be scrutinized, but it has nothing to do with security models, sandboxes, or "Apple being better". (To also comment to some other's responses)
