So any Android developers here know about the 'Read Google service configuration, Discover known accounts' permission (as displayed to user in Google Play)?  

I noticed this new addition to required permissions when I was about to update the ebay app.

I created my ebay account on a PC in the traditional way of a username and password.  

I can't find any details on what the above permission actually allows the app to do but I'm guessing it can gain details of all the accounts on a device and therefore one of the id's or meta of those accounts being their email address for each one.

Just wondered if my assumption was correct, do we only have the developers word that they're only querying accounts of their own type if their creating their own account type in the account manager for instance for a sync adapter?

Tried contacting ebay but the response was clearly not from anyone responsible for their app as they made out it was something to do with Google and not them.

Since the concept around this launch is sharing, here's the heads up in case you've missed it.

PS. If you happen to get a spare invite, I'd like one please.

Unfortunately the lack of suitable LTE support for Europe with no band 20 inclusion means it's less than ideal for the UK so I won't be buying one now.

I think this is worthy of further dissemination to those responsible for site / server security.
 
Well, this isn't good.

G+ General Help  - 
 
I see in the G+ settings on the desktop UI that there's the option of displaying different tabs on my profile page including "+1's" and a note nearby saying that even if you don't make these publicly visible that they are still visible to the profile owner.

This would be a good way to get back to someone else's post that I've +1 in the past but it doesn't show any content for me on this tab.   In fact it would be nice if it included posts that I've left a comment on to.

Thanks +Luiz Fernando.  Odd that the distinction is made but at least I know where to find it now even though it isn't as richly displayed as I would have liked.

Can the scrollbar arrows be brought back. After upgrading to 32.0.1700.76 m they have gone. This seems an absurd decision as all that's been achieved is freeing up screen space for a taller scrollbar.
