Uh-Oh, I Think They're Onto Us...

Well, folks, it finally happened - after numerous APK teardowns, Google has finally dropped a message to the Android Police teardown team inside one of the APKs - the Android Play Store v4.4 nonetheless.

The message reads: <string name="ap_teardown_notice">"These aren't the features you're looking for, officer"</string>.

Many of you have joked about this in past comments, so I've been wondering whether a Googler will actually do it one day.

Star Command is one of my most-anticipated games for Android. Or at least it was, two years ago when it was scheduled to be released, and then again when it was released for iOS five months ago. An unreasonably long development cycle and some dodgy developer antics have made waiting for this game an exercise in frustration, and it's impossible to give it a full review without at least some bitterness hanging on in the back of my mind.
