Can they fix Android?

I'm repeating myself, but it will require some very large lawsuits to force Google, manufacturers, and carriers to fix this mess.

Each of those should be terrified to think that their customers are doing banking, stock trades, business email, and other sensitive business using devices that likely will never see security updates.

It's just a matter of time before something large and expensive uses an unpatched exploit to hammer hundreds of thousands of users on a scale that cant be ignored.
