    Same here. And they only cost 1/5th the price of air pods.

    My wife loves her air pods, but I don't like them. I have the same issues with ear size. They just feel like they're ready to fall out. They do have decent sound however.

    - They're stuck in her ears
    - She's not interested in what people around her are saying

    But can you find those cheap Chinese AirPods knock-offs with "Find my iPhone" when you misplace them?

    So how does your wife like her AirPods?

    Why don't you take your cheap Chinese malware running devices and find some other thread?

    Generally. But maybe she does it just for UT.

    I didn't realize you were so sensitive about your work here. Going forward I'll try to make sure I don't implicitly or expressly duplicate without a very good reason.

    Thank you for recognizing my sensitivity. I feel validated.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    She likes them. After a couple of weeks, they disappeared. She and I looked everywhere in the house with no luck. I tried the "Find my Airpods" option, but apparently that only works when they are out of the case and turned on, making it a mostly useless feature. We gave up and a few weeks later she put on her coat and reached in her pocket and there they were. We probably should have said a prayer, I guess. I hear that works pretty well.

    I hate that fact. So to counter it, I sometimes keep looking for something even after I found it.

    Pelado is one of the nicest, most laid-back guys on the board. If a simple post like this irritates you, it might be time to do a little self reflection.

    I'm also very sensitive, so I appreciate creekster's commitment to tread lightly around my posts.

    I am very glad that you are here to police posts that might indicate the poster needs moments of self-reflection. How else would we manage? Thank you for your efforts, because it was not like Pelado and I were able to manage without your intervention. I look forward to further guidance from you in the future. If I am not on the board much this weekend, please be sure that it is only because I am in the corner, self-reflecting, according to your very valuable suggestion.
