And then, it's all cleared up? Fun.
Do you even understand what open source is? Just means source is available. Nothing to do with whether you can pull fixes, etc.
And Google can force them because the manufacturers have signed an agreement with Google.
Even Apple is not immune to this. Their very expensive disposable shit is not supported forever, and god forbid should an exploit be found then. What are Appletards supposed to do ? Simple, fork over more Franklin's for the new shiny cell phone and the cycle continues on and on.
Apple supported the iPhones with up to 4 years of patches. Is there any company with better track record? Oh, you want support forever? You should get a phone with an annual support contract then.
How can pre-Jelly Bean ~= 100 million devices?

Apparently you are under the impression that sensitive baby is the only reason they can pull up in court. Try hostile work environment.
And the remove box is compromised, and the attacker rides on your -X back to your box. Wheee.
Please don't be a fucking idiot. Dr. Cohen - the man who coined the word "computer virus" did his research on VAX/VMS and UNIX servers.
Great. Another wrongful termination lawsuit.
If you are such a damned diva, I don't want you working for me.
Because you never had to clean up after other people's shit? The larger the company, the larger the number of know-it-alls who think they know everything. These are the people who are the leading causes of a virus infection.
This has nothing to do with trust. This has everything to do with stopping stupid things from happening.
