Just imagine the howls from the TFBLB&DOFs...

....if this had been Apple:

'If you’re still carrying around a Galaxy Note 7, you should return it 
ASAP, because it’s about to become completely useless. Samsung on Friday 
announced that it will be issuing a software update to US Note 7s that 
will prevent the phone from charging or working as mobile devices.

The move comes a little a month after Samsung capped charging on US Note 
7s at 60 percent, and two months after Samsung fully recalled the phone 
because of explosions.'

If Apple had made a similar mistake the howls would have been about the bat=
teries, not the recall and follow-up. Given that Samsung has offered to rep=
lace all of them with a new phone at the Note 7 price point why do you have=
 an issue with bricking what's left?
