  • 16. The real problem with Android security though isnt malware that requires a fools active co-operation. No, the true trouble is that Google still doesnt do anything like enough checking of a before it lets them go on the Google Play Store. This is one thing that Apple does do better with its app store than Google does. ~ Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols (ZDNet, October 2012)
