While this tactic is relatively rare today, it holds the power to transform every internet-enabled gadget into a government tracking device.

NOT a problem exclusive to tech companies. The entire USA is perhaps at its highest state of internal conflict since the Civil War. Time for everyone to take a step back and ease up before we implode. That is just one man's opinion.

isaac.a.scott99@gmail.com's curator insight, September 22, 2019 11:42 AM
I feel like the author of this article has somewhat of a point. Although I don't own air pods nor do I plan on owning a pair, It's hard to go out and not see someone with a pair. I feel like they aren't necessarily better than wired headphones but I do see that it is furthering the potential to technology and making modern conveniences more convenient. The author is trying to convince you to see their point of view as they give you reasoning for their belief. The author cites his sources and what inspired the article which makes me feel like it's reliable. Although the main point of the article doesn't directly affect the audio industry, It does affect the consumers of the audio industry. Although this article seems opinion-based I could see this as a good insight into what the consumer thinks. I can see this source being used by the audio industry since it covers multiple topics that are related to the industry.
