    Man, Adam can even make COMPUTERS feel uncomfortable with facts. Also... kinda ironic that Adam, who goes over every single fact, literally waved away her terms and conditions with a ‘sure, whatever.’ Know it’s a gag, I’m just being a dick.

    The reason why they have you agree to the License Agreements is for profit, restricts modifications, protection over the products and to make sure your not affecting others products. The reason for profit is cause when you buy the product and it breaks cause of you they want you to come back to the store for the repairs. The restictions for modifications isn't a tech thing it been a thing for a lot of other products such as guns and cars and cars being to restrict people to having more powerful engines then police do. The protection over the products works with the modification cause say if you tinkered with your phone and broke the cooling part of it, your phone would start to burn up and kill it's self thats why they shut it down. Last is the protection from you affecting others stuff is hackers or theift cause if they let anybody change the person phone and get past the locks then you might as well have your wallet open to others that is what the License Agreements is about.

    idk how things are in usa but in eu if you bought the device you have full right to mess with software. iOS jailbreaking is legal, hackintoshes are legal no matter what licence agreement says. You can also put CFW(custom firmware) on ps3 if you dont play pirated games. You only put free software on your hardware.

    Well, tech companies don’t even have control of their own tech at this point because apple’s iPhone, the most private and hard to crack phone on the market, was hacked into by the government to get some terrorists information even after they asked apple and said no. So at this point I could be watched or listened to by any electronic appliance that is remotely smart.

    Let's be honest - if you knew any of these and still purchased one of those devices (and agreed to those license terms), you have no right to complain. Why? Because you literally agreed to it, and you voted with your wallet. You showed the vendor that what they're did was right, and they should continue to follow that course. So, no bitching, ok?

    Now, what you SHOULD have done, is NOT buy this piece of technology, and without customers, the vendors would be forced to change their policy to more reasonable ones. So, is this vendor's fault? No. Is this your fault? Absolutely.

    And if you DIDN'T knew any of this when you signed that contract with the devil... well... you should be smarter than this.

    A federal court ruling determined it to be unlawful to void a product warranty for 3rd party repairs in the United States. If you live in the U.S., the "void if removed" sticker is meaningless.
