I'd like to see somebody make a decent case using UCC Article 2: " 2-314. Implied Warranty: Merchantability; Usage of Trade (2) Goods to be merchantable must be at least such as (c) are fit for the ordinary purposes for which such goods are used." Laptops are ordinarily used to go online, but any model with this particular hack is not fit to do so. It could be argued that, even in the face of the EULA, Samsung has violated the implied warranty. It's like (obligatory car analogy) advertising that your car has a top speed of 200mph, but then hidden deep within the manual is a disclaimer that the tires will blow up if you go over 60.

Ahh, retreads.

If I could do a content search on my kindle, I'd find it.
