Re: No excuse

"Deliberate sabotage of items belonging to your own customers is about as unacceptable as it gets. Reducing performance to the point of making a device useless or a pain to use is surely criminal damage, reduced functionality is technically theft as they are depriving the legal owners of the full use of their product, and if manufacturers claim an update makes things better and it doesn't, or it makes it worse, then that is fraud too"

^ I fully agree which is why I welcome both the fines for Apple and Samsung and the accompanying adverse publicity for these two miscreants.
