Otakus In Danger Of Losing Their Virtual Anime Waifus Due To Tech Upgrade

A select number of otakus who chose to marry 2-D wives are now in danger of losing them. Gatebox is a tech start-up that released a “character summoning device” that lets its users live with hologram characters. However, these devices, called GTBX-1 Gateboxes will become inoperable as the company is discontinuing its service for the GTBX-1. Owners will no longer be able to see or talk to their virtual wife, as SoraNews24 detailed: 

There is, however, a silver lining to this potential digital strategy. Gatebox is discontinuing service for the GTBX-1 because its hardware isn’t compatible with improvements made to the newer GTBX-1000 model. Because this isn’t any fault of early adopters, owners of GTBX-1 models can exchange their unit, for free, for a GTBX-1000, for which service will be continuing without interruption. What’s more, the exchange program will go on until May 31, meaning that if users want to watch their original Gatebox wife’s final, fading moments in her original GTBX-1 before she’s reincarnated into newer tech, they can.

Sure, they're offering replacement for free, this time...
This is one of the reasons I won't buy an Amazon Echo or Google Home. If someone else can turn off your device, they're services, not products.
