James Kendrick has an interesting idea to combat Android fragmentation: charge users to get updates. 

I’m reminded of Steve Ballmer’s thoughts about Android being “free”. I’m also reminded of a drug dealer: “first taste free”. 

Bottom line: this will never happen. Even if it did, how would that $400 million be divided? The OEMs would probably fight about that for several months — before they released it to the carriers to fight about for several months.

    This is anything but a new idea. And it’s still a shitty one.
