That can be a problem because early versions of Android (prior to Android 8, those released in 2012 or earlier) have security problems that were just recently discovered. Device manufacturers don’t generally offer fixes for hardware that old. So, if you are still using an old Android device, you are doing so at your own risk. Here’s a news story that... [...]

The power of a having a respected brand

Well-respected brands can charge extra for their products. Ever since there have been mass media, that has been true. That’s why Coca-Cola costs more than a store brand. That’s why Nike sneakers cost so much. Any business, even yours, that makes a name for itself can use its good reputation to charge higher prices. This can go to extremes. Some of the biggest names can charge premium prices that seem to be exorbitant, but they can keep on selling at these prices, anyway.
