Logitech Will Brick Its Harmony Link Hub For All Owners

“On March 16th, 2018, Logitech will discontinue service and support for Harmony Link. Your Harmony Link will no longer function after this date,”

Imagine buying this thing 5 years ago, being really happy with it, everything setup and working just right, and now you’re told it just isn’t going to work anymore because the company doesn’t want to support it any longer. Apparently it’s because of some licensing that Logitech doesn’t want to renew.

Makes you wonder, what are you really buying when you purchase a device like this. Do you own it? Or are you just purchasing a license to use the device (like so many software purchases are) and the company can brick that device wherever they want.
