New Google Play Service seems causing Security Exception when trying to do GoogleAuthUtil.getToken(context, email, scope);

The exception messages says I need permission.READ_GSERVICES, however, my app does not use any Map and Location services.

My app released two months ago, but the above exceptions appeared within less than ten days. Anyone has similar problem?

Here are exception details:
SecurityException
Permission Denial: reading com.google.android.gsf.gservices.GservicesProvider uri content://com.google.android.gsf.gservices/prefix from pid=xxxx, uid=xxxx requires com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES

There is spike of this error happening now. Other developers met the same problems right now: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19816798/googleauthutil-gettoken-securityexception

I really like these two sites:
http://www.androidviews.net/
http://www.theultimateandroidlibrary.com/

(thanks +Wolfram Rittmeyer for sharing the Android Views. I didn't know that existed before)

Also, Android community is awesome :)

Check this video out. The image quality of sample photos looks good but not excellent.

Yes. Came back two days ago. Google IO is less interesting than last year. Maybe no OS and devices announces.

Hi Simon! question: did you experience the dust issue on your camera? I was about to get it but after all the reading I'm hesitating :(
