    Noticed there was a new Angry Birds update...also noticed a lot of angry reviews. According to the permissions list when you press the update button, it now asks for:

    -Receive SMS, read SMS or MMS
    -Send SMS messages

    I assume this has to do with the Rio/Super Bowl tie-in, but I'm wondering if they really need that much access. Are all the people complaining just paranoid when they say they're not updating, or that they're uninstalling?

    It was actually for their upcoming in game purchasing system. They have since removed the SMS requirement.
