Got an Android phone? SMASH IT with a hammer – and do it NOW

So Google could/should be able to issue a patch for Hangout to stop pre processing videos for now until manufactures pull their fingers out and issue a over the air update for android, an other messaging apps under it control. An other messaging app providers could provide the same fix fairly quickly as well, especially the big guys like Facebook and WhatsApp.

We will see how seriously the messaging apps themselves take this bug.
