It's a pretty sad state, and there's really not a heck of a lot we can do about it in the short term other than to stop pretending that we have secure devices and communication. People do think about fixing this stuff, but their numbers are nothing compared to those that think about breaking it. I'm pretty sure it's going to get worse before it gets better.
I haven't seen that in a long time, but it's LCD displays now and they take some time to mode switch, so there could just be a black screen in that instant most likely.
