When is an electrical engineer not an engineer? When Arizona's state regulators decide to play word games

WTF? Greedy prick deserves all the fines he gets.

"After the client informed Mills that the device should support USB charging, Mills raised his initial estimate from $4,000 to $4,800."

$800 for copypasting cheap existing plans"designing" a USB charging module????? When there's so many existing plans and basic PSU designs and cheap USB charging modules he could shove in there?

Rip-off prat can afford to pay the fines and then some. How many other people has he screwed over like this?

I doubt I'd charge more than a couple of hundred for the design in the article, and could probably knock off the basic design in an afternoon, with a working prototype. How the hell could his prices be justified?
