My phone hasn't been getting updates in a while and it's not old by any means(it was replaced last year under warranty) https://alternativeto.net/news/2018/5/google-planning-to-require-oems-distribute-regular-security-updates-for-android. This'll greatly improve the security of Android.

The nonsense that's been going on with this is ridiculous.

It is admittedly. But it does improve the cybersecurity situation in the US which is horrible. Several school districts and hospitals have dealt with malware especially Ransomware lately.

Why and how would anyone be depraved enough to target those places?

$ they'll almost definitely pay. One hospital even paid up lately despite having backups just to not have to deal with restoring their systems

Sickening, but I guess it's common enough motivator for disgusting and abhorrent actions for some people.

Off the top of my head notable "Anti-Trumpers" would be Kyle Kulinski founder of Justice Democrats, Tom Steyer, maybe John Kaisich if your looking for a more right-wing option. 

Unrelated but your Governor is very interesting

I actually like Governor Cuomo, I think he's a fairly good governor. I doubt that Nixon would win the primary.

At first he was grateful for a security update, then we talked about ransomware attacks, then he pointed me to his resistance game, and most recently it became about his goofball governor.

It sounds like it's rambling like a Monty Python skit...
