We really need to force them to defend their "safety issue" rationale in a court somewhere. I am sure they will just say it's just too hard to explain to you and that you will never understand. Patronising prigs

So, you say your gear is obsolete after 2 years? I guess your patent should only last that long. New fridges and major appliances going out after 3 years (real world anecdotes -brother had a washer last 3 years, washer and fridge lasted a little loner at ~4.5)? Maybe we should put an environmental tax on planned obsolescence, with the money refunded (pro-rated) to the consumers who bought the trash, er, items when turned in for recycling (tied to serial numbers to prevent theft). The ability to repair can extend the lifespan of items many times over.
they just need to sharpen the teeth of tax evasion and insurance fraud. I know of 2 people that love driving and don't pay their employer taxes or other required paperwork. One still drives, the other totaled his car and the insurer wouldn't cover any part of the vehicular damage due to the insured's saying he didn't drive for others. Too bad for him he committed fraud. Too many want to get rich quick and avoid taxes; maybe someone should create a service that takes their pay and takes their taxes out for the proper agencies?
disable IPv4 at your router, fiddle with all your connected devices. How many still work? This is nothing more than the digital television debacle part 2 :(
ps I have found I will need to replace both televisions, 8 computers, 4 laptops, 1 printer, and not even going to attempt the connecting of the trash-80 coupler to the mess... All these wonderful promises, very little delivery after the changeover (I get 1 OTA channel now v. 5-7 before the digital switch); the solution? Buy all new devices! Think of the boost to the world (Chinese) economy! Get off my LAN! mumblegrumble
The first bit should be easy. It's usually the latter (and tracking all of them together) where it get tricky.
Easy, seed with long passcode through a proper algorithm using the serial number/device name/etc. and spit out a somewhat secure password, not the greatest but better than default and easily tracked down/ recreated if needed
