Re: In other news. Windows 98 is easily hackable.
Windows has committed.
Google has not. There's nowhere where you buy a phone where people say that they are going to be giving you free software updates. Apple doesnt, Google doesnt, Blackberry doesnt, heck, even Windows Phone doesnt.
Why the expectation for them to?
Computers are being used for longer, there are still people using windows 98 and windows XP. Just because their systems are vulnerable should they go screaming at the media? Even after the support window has expired?
