    well doh. android was never really a stable os.
    there were always bugs, and those bugs never got fixed. they only were removed in the next higher version. and all complaints fall on deaf ears.

    this is what happens when you try "whore" something too much.

    So that's how NSA was accessing private data without Google knowing.

    Course they knew, NSA probably paid for the backdoor to be put in.

    This. Everybody is going to blame Google for not making Android secure. But in actual fact, a wonderful blatant backdoor was left for the NSA and Prism project so that the governments could go about their snooping and recording.
    This has been going on for decades though, nothing new here... people are only just getting up in arms about it...

    He's been holed up in Ecuadorian embassy in London for over a year, if he steps foot outside he will be arrested and deported to Sweden for rape charges
