I go out of my way to not buy Logitech products after the MX mouse (I posted a rant about that once upon a time, not sure if it's still around).  I have a Logitech Driving Force GT, and it works great, but, it only works if you have the AC adapter to plug in when you initially plug it in.  It also vibrates and whines annoyingly when plugged in, which is why I immediately disconnect the AC adapter after it calibrates itself.  It works after you unplug the AC adapter, so why it even needs it in the first place is a mystery in and of itself.

The fact that they and Google are doing such anti-consumer things lately is in a word, bullshit.  Imagine one day trying to run your home theater system that has zero problems, only to find that it doesn't work because Logitech decided to kill it.  And Google's devices are listening to people 24 hours a day in the privacy of their own homes, I just can't imagine how the hell convenience technology has become so damn 1984.

Looks like logitech is offering replacements after the backlash.

Instead of offer a replacement, how about just not brick it?

Agreed, or update it where it doesnt need their servers. Allow users to host one themselves.
