As noted, there was an earbud-related disaster yesterday. Now, I have long used the rule “two is one and one is none.” Because things fail and shit happens. I have two of pretty much everything I consider critical, with the exception of phones. But sometimes you let even the long-held practices slide. And this was one of them. So I replaced the AirPods and picked up a pair of Echo Buds. Which obviously aren’t quite as instant and seamless with an iPhone as the pods, but it only took them a minute or two to sort their lives out. And, to be honest, I’m as embedded in the Amazon ecology as I am in the iOS ecology, because, well, here we are in 2020 and I need things.
Yeah, I’m the enemy. In my defense, I don’t even try to hide it. Excuse me while I track a package from Fortnums and do more capitalisms.
