No to Belkin

Holy crap:

And yeah, I know this has been linked elsewhere, but I must do my part in spreading this news so nobody buys any more Belkin products.

We need open-source hardware designs. Then some manufacturers who just sell nice plastic cases for things.... "kits". Or pre-constructed kits with manuals, too. With Linux running on tons of little inexpensive FPGAs and stuff, it seems plausible at least.

But I guess the market should adjust too, right? I mean, people are dumb and tolerant, but only to a certain extent. It should bite Belkin in the ass. One would hope. There should always be a cool company out there, not doing the jack-ass thing... ?
