We reported on it with a feeling of rage burning in our bellies knowing that such short-sighted bullshit needed to be called out. When we posted it to Facebook, you came in your droves to stick a middle finger up at the corporate electronics authority (and also us, because some people can't read beyond a headline – don't shoot the messenger, OK?!)
