I've decided I'm not a big fan of this "simplified" permissions update.
1) Google doesn't want you to know that apps use the internet. Why? (Oh yeah, it wants ads by default. But in the process makes it less obvious that an app could be up to no good. Not that that stopped people from installing things... Just makes it harder to tell for people who actually care.)
2) Google doesn't want to make obvious which permissions have changed. Why? (No obvious good reason I can think of. Aside from lowering the barrier to auto update and just getting the user to blindly update. Might as well get rid of all "permission" information then and be like iOS.)
I dunno, seems like the Google experience has been going backwards for the last year or so... (G+, maps, android...)
