Every language that has NULL has the tools to deal with NULL (i.e. the ability to compare a reference to NULL). The problem isn't NULL, the problem is that lazy programmers don't account for the real world, where data is messy and failures in other parts of the system happen all the time.

Drivers? For a *mouse* ?
It's fucking USB HID device (or bluetooth wireless if your laptop has Bluetooth 4.0 LE and you go dongle-less).
It's just a bunch of axis and buttons (though you have to admit that the MX Master mice tend to have a little bit more than the average of them).
You just plug into anything with generic USB HID support and it should work out of the box.
If it doesn't work, you shouldn't blame Logitech, you should blame the retarded operating system that fails at basic USB HID.

Oh, you plug it in and it works, but you don't get all the fancy per-game remapping and 30s startup time and 1-2GB RAM consumption. Those are worth something too, you know.

In other news, Logitech's "drivers" have always been shit.

I've never in my life had a cable or satellite bill over $100. However, I don't pay for sports packages, and I don't pay for premium (HBO) channels, so maybe I'm not average. In the end, though, the $70-80 I was paying wasn't justified by the 3-5 channels I DID watch, so now I record the OTA stuff I want to watch, and Netflix/Amazon for the rest.

The card industry isn't "delaying the certifications", all the retailers put their heads in the sand and hoped the switchover wouldn't happen. When it did, they all showed up to the card industry on the same day and demanded certifications. Well, it takes time. Retailers who didn't wait are already certified and were on day one.
