Re: Zero permissions?

It uses the Google Voice Search to initiate the call, or that's the theory.

Theory... They play a sound file that says "Call <BadGuysPhoneNumber>" and GVS calls the number then they play sounds files to pass the information down the phone (Not sure how they get the information in the first place!)

what actually happens.. GVS says "Sending your're an a***hole message to Boss"
