I'd love to teach my crackberry how not to, but that's not in the offing
for a while, I'm afraid...

I've never had an instance where dmesg and lsusb didn't tell me that
something was connected, and what specific device it was using for that

been doing this for very long, so I'm sure there are more knowledgeable
folk out there than I...
