    Catching up to iOS in that regard... Just hope they don't sue.

    A lot of these changes are just going to make it if not much harder then nigh on impossible to root your device.

    I'm going to get REALLY peeved if smartphones get ahead of desktops in both screen resolution AND application protection (such as SELinux). I wish desktop application MAC could be half-way decent out of the box for both Linux and Windows, it's all too hard.
