Microsoft Can Remotely Kill Purchased Apps
Microsoft's terms of service for its Windows Store allows the company to remotely "kill" or remove access to a user's apps for security or legal reasons, it said.
As noted by Computerworld, Microsoft's terms of service for the Windows store will technically allow the company to cut off access to apps, even if the user purchased them.
Microsoft unveiled an app store for Windows 8 apps, on Tuesday. The key ingredients of the Windows Store are easy app discovery from within and without the online marketplace, built-in app trials with quick upgrade paths, support for both x86 and ARM-based hardware, and a flexible business model, Microsoft's Antoine Leblond said then.
