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.
