From Verizon’s press release today:

Today, Samsung announced an update to the Galaxy Note7 that would stop the smartphone from charging, rendering it useless unless attached to a power charger. Verizon will not be taking part in this update because of the added risk this could pose to Galaxy Note7 users that do not have another device to switch to. We will not push a software upgrade that will eliminate the ability for the Note7 to work as a mobile device in the heart of the holiday travel season. We do not want to make it impossible to contact family, first responders or medical professionals in an emergency situation.

The lawyers are gambling on where the lawsuits might come from: the fires or the communication cutoff.

That’s exactly what happened yesterday at Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport, according to KIRO-TV and other news outlets. The fire was first reported on the sixth floor of the garage around 6:45 a.m., and it quickly moved to consume several other vehicles. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but airport officials estimated damage to be around $250,000.

Well, guess I’m living under a rock
