Thomas, your answer is correct for some cases. For other cases it is just because they can get away with it. At the moment it seems that a large number of our former brethren are letting them get away with it to new extremes. Acts like that allow the industry to lower the standards. What keeps manuals a necessity in some industries, customer demand, right?
This is where I draw a line, I don't let them get away with it, they don't get my money (the company's money that I control) until I am satisfied the product is finished/workable/releasable (which includes documentation to a certain standard). It is not up to me to 'discover' how the program works or doesn't work for $8000 or even the $1500 for the upgrade. As for your beverage holders, did you ever pour hot coffee in your lap while driving this vehicle? Possibly/probably you could sue! 8^> Naw, forget it, I don't promote people suing because they lack a sense of responsibility for their own actions, there is too much of that crap in the courts these days.
