    Rather interesting, especially the detailed photos and hints what to look for.

    I get lists about every three months from my suppliers of the latest 'hottest' devices in circulation.
    It cuts into their business, and the buyers don't seem to pay much attention to who they buy from, if they
    see they're getting a low price.
    You'd think we'd be hearing more about product failures from specific manufacturers, ...but maybe THAT's bad
    for business (too).

    The more worrying thing is the re-labelling of parts by the manufacturer. Sure it seems to be to label (if I read it right) high spec parts as lower spec, but it really muddies the water.
