the precedent this sets if a manufacturer can

IIRC Google bricked a perfectly functioning device, that IoT hub I don't remember the name of, and nobody mostly noticed. Samsung tries to stop using a device which can became very dangerous (if you want to keep one, please use it only in your isolated house, and nowhere near me), but some stubborn children wants to keep the shiny toy... oh, well, maybe it's just Darwin, there will be some less after some fires...
