Can we all agree that rooting a phone is not for everyone? That's kind of important, because these days, Android actually is a platform for most people.
I was kind of excited yesterday when I realized that 1. the Moto X is awesome and 2. I can get it on Verizon with something resembling stock Android. My colleague Eric Limer puzzled a second and reflexed out "just root it" into our Giz group chat. Well, "Just root it" can just suck it.
