“No wonder experts are saying things like this,” Cook said, quoting ZDNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: “Android fragmentation is turning devices into a toxic hellstew of vulnerabilities.”
I’ve always thought it was more a noxious pudding of emotional honesty.
Wow. …and ZDNet usually stays away from dialogue better suited to a Michael Bay movie.
Malware is a serious issue for Android and IF you want to help, advocate security apps as needed, -all sorts of choices exist. (My favorite is Kaspersky). In fact, if you have an Android device and you haven’t installed some sort of security app, you need to go ahead and get that accomplished.

An area for improvement with Android phones continues to be battery life. If you have a phone that requires charging more than once a day, it compromises your mobility. What’s the solution? Extra batteries, never a bad idea, require the phone to be rebooted, not always the best idea, as well as manipulation of the battery door that can result in wear and tear. I’m not always in a car or near an outlet, either.
In the halcyon days of Palm and their legendary Pilot, several cases floated around that were essentially sleeves providing support for a clip-on battery. It’s been done before and isn’t beyond the range of a competent engineer. I say we get those cases back, plug them in our charging ports, and get back to work.
