Android & fine-grained app privilege control

Thanks, Shawn!

Edit: Google claims it was an accidental release and they're not doing this. Grrrr. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/...ndroid-shortly-after-adding-them Which makes me wonder what the value is in encouraging us to over-privilege apps.

EFF: Awesome privacy features in Android 4.3. I know I'll be way more likely to try various apps if I can install them without giving full-on access to privileges they don't need, and toggle that on later if I decide they really do need them.
