OK so we arrive at our lovely AirBnB… as is our custom, the IT dept (me) starts setting up the temporary stereo (bluesound/audioengine/etc) with music library from home etc etc and computers and printers… meanwhile the Sousal Unit is impatient and since the ads for the house said that there are Sonos speakers, she figures she will connect spotify to one and play some tunes. But… no joy. She asks me for help … I say hey man, I don’t handle that kinda stuff, I am high-end. She tries a bunch of Sonos speakers, no music. Then after a bit she says "wait… i hear something coming from somewhere. We walk around the house trying to find it… upstairs, downstairs… cannot locate it. Finally in frustration we sort of give up and wander into the kitchen. It’s the refrigerator, playing Hendrix.
DOES THE WORLD REALLY NEED THIS???
Since then, a couple of times the fridge has spontaneously broken into song. (I have experienced this with Spotify in other situations on occasion FWIW.) She had to disconnect it from the LAN to shut it up, except now I bet it will start yelling about that and claiming it’s Being Silenced.
Imagine what life is gonna be like in 2040.
