Samsung 'Hacks' Its Own Phone, Should Xiongmai Do The Same?

Samsung is forcing a software update to the infamous Note7, which limits battery life to 60 minutes, in an effort to have people return them prior to detanation.

If XiongMai was serious about their recall, they could make their devices all give on screen warnings to the owners and also contact/return info, using the same techniques scripts used in the botnet conscription phase.

What about it XiongMai?
