Obsolete already

Replied to Google Is Forcing Me to Dump a Perfectly Good Phone by Aaron Gordon (vice.com)

Three years ago, my Pixel 3 was the latest and greatest Google phone. Now, the company has stopped providing software updates, making it a security risk to use.

*screams into the void*

Google just loves to rub their “don’t be evil” origins into the dirt. Why couldn’t Microsoft have gotten into the phone business early enough to be competitive? 😭😭😭

In right to repair legislation we’re seeing requirements that parts continue to be available for a certain period of time… (Not that it’s passed yet as far as I recall but the idea’s there…fingers crossed for this legislative session!) Could we also have policies requiring that high end devices be maintained for a minimum number of years?
