I really wonder whether it is merely "commercial" activities or actually some kinds of government backed actions.  Though it is the worst on Android, Apples are facing the same threat.

Surely the govt encourage this.

Before 911, around 1997/8, the US govt proposed a new law to install a special chip in all network equipments. The proposal was termed "Clipper Chip" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipper_chip) and was opposed by ALL network equipment manufacturers and network service providers.

After 911, no one dare to object anything like that. Although eventually the Clipper Chip died, I am 100% a variation of it is now commonly adopted. Not just on large network routers and switches, but possible on terminal devices, like smart phones.
