Wow Scary event this weekend.

Went to Fry's Electronics and purchased Tablets... Dell Venue 8"

Set them up and went to Install Credit Card app for the Biz only to find out that 2 of them were Rooted??

What The ?????  My app would not launch because first test from app is to see if device is rooted or jail / Broken
