    I'm not. GE5 also carries Google Update Engine with it that apparently has the power to automatically download apps from foreign servers and install them locally as root.

    I'm done with Google.

    What does that have to do with being impressed with Google's underwater mapping?

    If you can shut off auto update, I'm fine with it.

    Same here, I downloaded it started the install, then the message about the updater appeared - instant quit and delete, will make do with the Google Maps site from now on instead.
