  1. Canadian carriers still haven't given the go ahead for the update here, and on a side note, neither have they for the S4 update either.

  3. If you're dumb enough to sideload an app and you don't know the security risks, well, then that's your fault. If you're good enough to be an Android then you take security precautions anyway.
  4. I always question the motives of "Security firms" when they start claiming to have found such major security issues. Anyone that gets excited over claims made by a startup company needs to look at the source of the information. Bluebox Security is trying to make a name for themselves by pointing out an exploit in the most widely used mobile OS on the market. If this had come from Kaspersky, BitDefender, TrendMicro, Symantec or McAfee....I'd be more inclined to believe it's really a major issue.
  5. It only took 4 years for them to fix it... How about fixing the OS so updates happen like every other modern OS, independently of the hardware... Linux anyone?
