Android Market Spam

I totally DO NOT favor Apple’s strategy with their censorship style 110% control of application and content that runs on their proprietary devices like iPad and iPhone ! But it seems with the Android market we are approaching the other end, total freedom and no control which opens eventually the floodgates for spam, trash applications or trojan horses. Here one sample, I observe some trashy girls pics applications showing up regularly in the Software Library section, obviously the guy keep on re-submitting into application areas with little traffic. Its not one but dozens of them, soon there will be so much of this stuff. And can you explain to me why an application that does nothing but showing pictures need to have access to your location, phone calls and Internet connection ?
