Phones and Groans

We rarely discuss cell phones here at Sound & Vision, but I suspect that most readers, if forced to choose which device they’d choose to keep if they had to divest themselves of all but one, would choose their cell phone. But that wouldn’t include me. I don’t check my phone 20 times a day, and Facebook and Twitter are strangers to me. In the past I’ve used my cell phone mainly for e-mails, news, Listen-In radio, and phone calls.

But my recent experience with a new cell phone offers cautionary lessons also applicable to our more house-bound entertainment goodies: televisions, AVRs, speakers, home assistants, home automation, and more.

Occasionally I’ll have to download an app to use with a product under review…
