No, subby, this bullshiat doesn't matter, and the "internet of things" and the clowns pushing it can frig off.

How many articles are we gonna see about "smart" devices being bricked or at the very least losing significant functionality when the company goes under before people are like " yea this is stupid"

What makes you think the company needs to go under.

Tech Support Guy: Hi, thanks for calling. How can be of assistance?

Home Owner: My Thingamabob 5000 stopped working.

Tech Support Guy: Hmm, let me check something.... Yeah, that's a really old version, it came out like 5 years ago and we ended sales of that model like 3 years ago. As per policy we shut down the server since we end support 3 years after end of sales. But the good news is, since you're a loyal customer I can offer you 10% off the Thingamabob Vista!
