 remember that software can always be fixed after it is released.

 hardware *CANNOT BE FIXED*.

 chinese clones of USB3 cables that fail to obey the USB3 charging standard.

 chinese knock-offs of chargeable fidget-spinners that explode and
cause lithium battery fires.

 so the most extreme case is also the most damaging, but it doesn't
actually matter which is more "extreme", *any* damage to the
reputation of a mass-volume Certified Standard is enough to completely
destroy the Standard, due to the sheer volume of people who will blame
the STANDARD *and* the Standard's CREATOR.

 question: how do you propose that people not get murdered by the
incompetence of an individual who blatantly disregards a hardware
standard's safety warnings?  (we are extremely lucky that nobody has
murdered anyone through the deployment of "bad-usb").
