Betting the farm

Doing some exploratory work for a VoIP application, I bought this nifty LinkSYS VoIP adapter. But I find that adapter only knows how to find Vonage. The firmware is programmed that way. Easy for Vonage customers, useless to us.

But it seemed to be a reasonable business decision for LinkSys. Sign on with a big player.

Or is it? Vonage recently lost a lawsuit from Verizon, so their future is uncertain.

That makes all these boxes useless. (Or will someone find a creative way to redeem them?)
