Answering everyone and no one, here is the most succinct form that
I have yet come up with:

   Problem: Devices that are unfixable & immortal

   Solution: Mortal if unfixable || Fixable if immortal

Yes, I know, for absolutely any solution there will be opponents
the chief of which are inertia and ignorance.  So WTF else is new?

A better behavioral economist than I might now work on an insurance
scheme whereby so long as you take the updates it is the maker that
is strictly liable for all downsides, else it is you.
