Don't be too shocked, but it looks as though these politicians have actually got their act together on IoT security

Re: When there is bipartisan agreement

"We find an issue of security. So we send an update to the device that has a security issue"

Who is this 'we' again, exactly? And that's why what you said won't work, regardless of it being snark (or not).

Mark Twain _WAS_ right. NO legislation is better than BAD, particularly if it includes something like THAT.

We (the end users) don't need THEM (the 'we' in your proposal) CONTROLLING, DICTATING, and potentially DESTROYING our devices... or our freedom.

Also, any solution that involves the private sector ALSO involves CHOICE on the part of the consumer. Taking that freedom away through regulation is another small step towards TOTALITARIANISM.
