Google has the power to not only remove applications from users' Android phones, but remotely install them as well.
Last week, Google told the world it had exercised its Android "Remote Application Removal Feature," reaching out over the airwaves and lifting two applications from citizen handsets, and as pointed out by the man who built this pair of vanished applications – security researcher Jon Oberheide – the company can use the same persistent handset connection to install applications as well.

If that revelation is a tree then its seed is Apple.
Apple releases "updates" for their software on a regular basis and can remote kill an entire phone a la the leaked iPhone 4 prototype.
Not just cellular phones that have everything logged, its the internet too. If you think its a different story then why does ATS track IP addresses of posters?
