 Don't forget " - Motorola is a totally separate company. Google has no control over what Motorola does!"
I'm sorry, but this gave me a bit of a chuckle.   In your case, if there would have been a soft-shutdown, how would you turn the damn thing on again? :)
That's a pretty interesting idea actually. The question is how the operators respond to such a device, because if they take it in they would *truly* only be a bitpipe with no chance of adding value. On Android they can at least keep adding their crapware. On Apples devices, not so much...
  The difference being that Android has been the underdog technologywise in both hardware and software the entire time (iOS and Apple being the leader). Amiga technology was so far ahead of it's time it was not even funny. At least 10 years. PC compatibles at the time I was buying my first Amiga had DOS, CGA-Graphics and sound that would make dogs cry. Apple had the GUI nailed down but was not even color and with only cooperative multitasking. Not to mention extremely...
  That sounds absolutely fantastic! So when you have hired those 200K assembly workers in a couple of months you move on to the eaven easier task of hiring 8700 engineers to oversee those workers. Possibly relocating most of them from all over the country in the process, since I doubt you can tap into that kind of (readily avaliable) talent pool in any one place on the continent.   Luckily, American engineers are just that flexible!
BTW. I forgot:   Countdown to class-action lawsuit in 3...2....1
I live in Sweden an the last few days all the big national newspapers have jumped on the bandwagon and are now reporting people getting burnt or electrocuted by their iPhones. Today there was a frontpage article about a girl that had slept *on* her iPhone 5 and was *chocked* to learn that she mobile finally got very hot and she claimed to have been burnt by it.   I'm sure this is not over yet. I am also equally sure that we are not going to read any stories about...
Amazon celebrates their newly government approved and protected monopoly by.....wait for it.....raising prices!   http://www.mhpbooks.com/monopoly-acheived-an-invincible-amazon-begins-raising-prices/   http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/05/business/as-competition-wanes-amazon-cuts-back-its-discounts.html?pagewanted=2&ref=technology&_r=0   But of course, it's all in the interest of the consumer. Obviously.   Amazon stockholders can pop the champagne though....
It seems Samsung are too. Someone posted this on TheVerge forums:   2.80 Galaxy 5/Europa 3.14 Galaxy Mini 3.20 Galaxy 3/Apollo 3.50 Galaxy Ace 3.65 Galaxy Player 3.6 4.00 Galaxy S, S III Mini, Player 4.0 4.20 Galaxy Player 4.2 4.27 Galaxy S II 4.50 Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Infuse 4G 4.52 Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch 4.65 Galaxy S II HD LTE, Galaxy Nexus 4.80 Galaxy S III 5.00 Galaxy Player 5.0 5.29 Galaxy Note 5.55...
  As I see it they are at least indirectly paying their "customers" since they are extremely successful in making the impression that they are giving it all away (software, services, hardware) just out of the godness of their heart ("do not evil"). When they are actually selling their users and all the data they can possibly collect about them to the highest bidder. It's actually quite brilliant since their "customers" are also violently defending Googles right to do so....
