Re: Let this be a lesson

Yeah, gerdesj - see my post above. Roll your own and it might be fine...otherwise you're the product; that's getting tired, but what else to call this crap?

The question of who should be liable for software failures occasionally comes up on Bruce Schneieir's security blog...

MS would have gone bankrupt long since even if it was a nickle per incident. Systems failure - the big things like airplanes have laws in place...Self driving cars are going to get interesting. IoT is yet another place the question is too open.

Seems like consumers should demand something other than a handwaving warranty that doesn't cover anything. I resist saying there should be a law, as that hardly ever ends well.
