Ok, so just to be clear, "we" are designing, building, testing, marketing, selling and deploying robotic suicide bombers now?

For the love of Laws of Asimov man, Did you even try the gas dispensing, smoke grenade launching, concussion grenade launching, taser equipped bot first?

No it isn't!

Unless by killing you mean the Open Source approach that has earned the OS control of 1.5 billion devices (as of 09/29/2015).
Most of Android's problems stem from the fact that it is an open source operating system.

Quote from the article "Android is a practical demonstration of the sort of mess that Linux would have become if it had enjoyed widespread popularity with hardware OEMs" proves that this is not credible.

Let's break it down.

Android is based on Linux. Not the other way around. If anything, fragmentation is working for Linux, not against it.

Linux pretty much runs the internet. Look at how many servers are running Apache vs window server. Not as popular as a version of itself? Hmm.

Iot. Let's ask ourselves what OS that stuff all runs.

The upgrade issue. Let's address that also. It's very simple. Which phones receive the updates faster? Is it the fast boot capable ones? As in the ones that allow users to very simply ditch OEM software for an alternative? Yeah, it is. What about lifespan? It seems those which allow more open roms win again.

Now, the icing on the cake. What would Android use as a kernel if they would decide to close off the source? That would be a violation of the GPL license that the kernel is licensed under. In other words, Android would need an entirely new kernel if they intend to close the source.

The author of this article seems quite uneducated.

Investigative long form journalism. 
A hotly contested, supposedly ancient manuscript suggests Christ was married. But believing its origin story—a real-life Da Vinci Code, involving a Harvard professor, a onetime Florida pornographer, and an escape from East Germany—requires a big leap of faith.

Father's Day review of Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender episode 1 👍(2 Thumbs Up)👍


Story
Over the course of an hour the writers introduce your typical space uncle falls from the sky, pilot in training teens discover ancient robots, alien invasion, defrosted princess, alien bad guy wants all the ancient robots, 3 act story. Yet they do so efficiently and artfully while clearly defining each character.

Artwork
The series is combines a hand drawn characters with limited cell shaded cgi for the Lions and ships and possibly space backgrounds. The hand drawn character models are distinct and face are decorated with all the familiar anime expressions at appropriate moments. Classic Voltron split screens are used throughout. The CGI lions and Voltron forming evoked the classic cartoon's scenes in my brain without disappointment. Animation overall was fluid and interesting.
