Re: Couldn't they just change permissions on /proc/net?

How would Google collect the logs (without ending up as the subject of a "google is stealing your information from your phone!!11!!" dogpile), and then how would they parse all of them to pass information on to app developers?

It's a nice idea that would work well on a handful of servers, but doesn't really scale up to millions of phones.
