In lieu of the obligatory posting of The Onion article "Area Man Constantly Mentioning He Doesn't Own A Television", let me present this as an alternative :
I did this all while you were watching TV

But seriously, WTF do I need a separate APP to stream each goddamned channel?!!! The function is standard, the endpoint just changes.

I didn't say anything about government licensing, registration or inspection. Only about mandatory fines. Inspection could be done privately, similarly to voluntarily getting a UL sticker -- which says a lot about your product.

If you product causes a fire, your company is to blame. It should be similarly for IoT devices used for hacking. If you make a device that is hacked and used to cause damage, your company is to blame just as much as if your device caused the building to burn down. What is so difficult to understand about this? Companies should make unsafe products. If you can't, then get out of the way for the next guy who can.
