why shame someone for having an old phone when you can congratulate them for successfully defying planned obsolescence

@diodelass no need to shame them, but their phone's probably insecure because the firmware's not getting updated.

@moonman @diodelass
the new phone's firmware isn't getting updated either

@wolf480pl @diodelass I got at least one OTA firmware update for my Nexus 6, maybe that's not normal though.

@moonman @diodelass
if you look at any linux distro's security announcements, you'll see that vulnerabilities are discovered and fixed every week, if not every day.

I don't think one OTA update in a phone's lifecycle is enough to keep it secure.
