BS. Bricked is readily understood to mean that the device is as useful as a brick. The OP’s point is that _all_ functionality that he paid for is disabled. Your point is pure pedantry, and easily dismissed as such.
Also, there’s a _giant_ difference between: “My device randomly stopped working after the warranty period expired”; and: “The manufacturer deliberately disabled the device I paid for well before the end of its useful life”.
If Revolv users file a class action lawsuit over this, I pretty much guarantee that they’ll win. The key arguments would be:
1/ Is it legal for a manufacturer to deliberately act to disable a device they have sold to a consumer?
2/ What is a reasonable expected working life for a device beyond the end of its warranty period?
There’s likely no need to get to 2/. 1/ is the killshot.
