Name Hardware You Buy That Is A Brick Unless You Keep Paying Them (Except For Meraki / Verkada / Openpath)

With Meraki, Verkada, and Rhombus, you buy hardware (switches, cameras, etc.) that becomes a brick (no functionality at all, no video streaming, etc.) unless you pay them every year.

Serious question - can you name any other hardware that you buy (not lease or rent) that becomes a brick if you stop paying?
