Always knew there was something dodgey about Razor.

It only needs internet connection to initially setup your profile. I see no issue here especially with the enthusiast consumer in mind (its a gaming mouse for gods sake what gamer does not have access to internet). The only issue I can see is that they did not list having an internet connection as mandatory on the box somewhere.
Totally, and utterly besides the point.
An internet connection shouldn't be required to use it. In the same sense an internet connection shouldn't be required to play single player exclusive games. It increases the chances that you may not be able to use the product you paid for (example, lose internet. This is especially applicable to Satellite users). And, as already proven, you could also lose access should the authenticating server go offline. Ie: Something not your fault or within your control.
It amazes me how many people like yourself are willing and prepared to surrender to such rediculous restrictions on things you have legally purchased. A very unhealthy attitude - that kind of thing is why so many people have their freedoms and rights stripped away by individuals motivated by one thing; Profit.

I'm sure that would be their excuse. How long will it be before we'll need internet access to simply turn our PC's on?Edited by Thingamajig - 11/2/12 at 7:59pm
