my new monitor has a EULA?
@th "... thereby if user in as so much as looks at it, guarantee is immediately voided. Vendor is under no obligation to ever show anything useful once display has been onwrapped thereby voiding the end user licence agreement according to §7 consumer law..."
@firstname.lastname@example.org it's huawei, they're probably sending your data to the chinese government as you speak.
that's why you don't buy a smart monitor if possible.
if this isn't a smart monitor, then why would they require you to agree to a eula on a monitor.
either way smart monitors shouldn't exist, otherwise it's not a monitor, it's a television.
@th this makes me happy to have collected more monitors than I can justify needing that are all too old to have embedded software.
@th they're turning them into mini-computers on their own, but with vastly less ability to install your own shit on them, and it's the worst
@th The fuck?? It's HARDWARE.
We'd probably be sending it back and getting a different brand. Like the time a WD external drive came with a EULA thing on a slip of paper, tryimg to claim we agreed to arbitration. We sent it back and bought Seagate.
@th software updates of the screen? How does that work. It's mot like you'd normally connect them to a network?
@th that monitor is sussy af. why would such a thing need a eula, i swear capitalism has failed us even in the tech world
