Spam callers be gone! Today, we’re beginning to update your Google Phone app with spam protection on #Nexus and #AndroidOne devices to warn you about potential spam callers and give you the ability to block and report these numbers. If you already have Caller ID turned on, spam protection will be available on your phone once your app updates to the latest version. Learn more: https://goo.gl/FFRCP1

I have my cell phone set to silently send all calls from numbers not in my contact list to voicemail. The spam stops there. People who legitimately need to reach me can leave me a voicemail which I can use to add them to my contacts list.

Bad +Moto.
 
After a big song and dance about Motorola's update policy it looks like the real answer is what I originally reported: No monthly security updates.
Motorola says it is "more efficient" to bundle security updates into fewer releases.

People give Marissa Mayer a lot of shit but from when she took over Yahoo they went from four years of stagnation to almost tripling their value.

When something has been given a negative opinion, it will take triple (or more) efforts to revert it. While something is still negative will attract more shit irrespective of what the actual data say. .. I think she took a big challenge and is working very hard on it.
