Re: Proper testing
Agreed, being able to capture and test every edge case is very very difficult. But as pointed out on the article, "intentional misuse of software", I think this crosses the line.
What were the developers thinking and felt when they were ask to design and roll out what VW and Lenovo did? Imagine the feeling...and probably there legal department got involved to assure nobody "blew the whistle".
It's amazing to think what companies willing to do to purposely output decising products.
