    First thing I thought of when reading the headline is "inbuilt obsolescence". Good to see it's not the case!

    What a lazy and uncaring 'apology'.

    What did you expect? A reach around?

    Its perfectly appropriate considering they don't seem to have located the cause, and have no solution.
    Did you want a tear filled video with the CEO commuting seppuku for the shame he has brought on his family? I am pretty sure that would violate YouTube's Terms of Use.

    Do you take every opportunity to return volley as if someone has just shit in your sandwich or do you just unload like a limit-break in FF7 when your ****-o-meter reachs max volume?

    I'm just sick of reading half-assed company apologies that read like a non-verbal shrug.

    The apology was not half-assed. If its all they say once, things are sorted, that's another matter potentially.
    My comment was not to be taken so seriously, mate, I talked about seppuku, and it violating YT's terms of use.
    Maybe dial it back a notch or two.

    Jesus some people.They explained the situation, let people know that they were actively seeking a solution, promised an update and then apologized.I guess some people just want to be offended and high horse riders these days.Sad

    That's the problem with strict security, what's going to happen to devices that have no support and an expired certificate?

    considering how quickly the the occulus community apparently found the issue, any EOL products with similar popularity would likely be hacked back together in no time.

    Hopefully, but the larger issue is that you shouldn't have to worry about your expensive peripheral becoming a paperweight. A larger question also is the purpose of the security cert - as a Revive dev stated on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/Vive/commen...ue_to_expired/

    If malware has enough access to your PC to manipulate files in your Program Files folder it means the malware has admin rights. It doesn't need to hide itself in drivers / libraries anymore, you're screwed.

    It really is a DRM feature unfortunately. Without the code signature you could manipulate the Oculus Platform DLL to stop checking whether you own the game.
    The whole 'security' concern seems flimsy considering the Vive doesn't use the same implementation.
