Can Someone Control Your Smartphone?

If you hate your kids or younger siblings using your device, changing settings or configurations, you'll really be amazed at what power a manufacturer or wireless provider has to reach into your home and virtually change songs or even disable your device.
It is a real threat. In fact,  Samsung is threatening to do just that to anyone who owns a Galaxy Note 7. Five months ago, the device was voluntarily pulled from circulation.  Now the company is preparing to virtually reach into each of the remaining devices and disable charging, effectively,permanently disabling the device.
Scary? Yes. Am I surprised? No. Do you believe that a company should control a device that you've purchased or do they have an inherit right to disable your device without your permission?
