  1. During the recording I had an additional point about the LG TV story, and brain farted. Belatedly it has come back to me.

    This is like device DRM. It’s one thing to have a movie or game not play because some DRM has kicked in to stop you, it’s another when your device itself kicks in to deny you features you’ve paid for.

    With media DRM, you can at least use that device for other things, it’s just the media that’s broken.

    This is a very dangerous precedent. It means that companies now expect people to compare and study novels worth of legalese for every single purchase they intend to make, in addition to comparing features, benefits and prices. If we don’t want to become legal scholars, and practice that knowledge when shopping,, we deserve to be shafted.

    How much does this complicate the salesperson’s job? Think the salesperson gives you accurate information now? Wait until the legalese layer kicks in…… remember that policies change all the time with no announcements from the companies.
