Re: Killing TVs, a step too far

What are you expecting the Manufacturers to do on security?

This isn't a security hole in the TV / phone. You have to download this app, agree to install it, and agree to give it admin rights. Even after you've done all that it only locks the screen. What could the manufacturer possibly do to protect you from yourself in that scenario?
