A perk of connected devices, or at least what gadget manufacturers will tell you, is they can receive over-the-air updates to keep your device current. Those updates don't always go as planned, however. In fact, they can go horribly wrong. Take a company called Lockstate, for example, which attempted to issue new software to its LS6i smart locks last week and ended up bricking devices. That isn't great.

I don't know what these people were expecting.

This is wifi based lock- any f***tard can start guessing pin codes on your lock and after 5 failed attempts your lock is blocked- wow... I smell agile quality assurance here- let's our clients test our s***code out first!
