        So we shouldn't innovate because some people are so dumb and irresponsible that they lose everything?

                            I just bought my PowerBeats Pros for $50 off (they actually don't fall btw!) and thought I was defying Apple! Until I found out they are a subsid. of Apple Co. 😂

                                          As I was watching this I was thinking Apple could have a feature where you could like tap a button in an app and the airpods would emit a beeping noise so you could find them if they're in range, kinda like Googles Find my device feature for Android where you log in to your Google account on your computer (that's signed in on your phone or tablet) and select the device set off a beep. What's great about find my device it works even if your phone is in silent or do not disturb mode. Google has a video on it here ➡️

                                                  Just throw them in the garbage and you’ll never have to look them again.

                                                    The ad before the video was, in my case, the official video from Apple for their AirPods. Odd. Very odd. Or a cunning way to obtain more focus and attention about the AirPods? I would use “astute” choice.
