This is Otis. Otis is my new neighbor’s very-outdoor cat. I met Otis about two weeks ago when he took shelter on my back porch during a rainstorm. Since then, when I leave for work in the morning, Otis comes across the parking lot to say hi and have a belly rub.

Sonos adds full Wi-Fi compatibility. FINALLY. -

Finally, a worthy use of “FINALLY.”

But really, Sonos has always been one of those confounding companies to me. Their hardware is so good, but the software is such crap. And the general set up process for their products is one of the worst things I’ve ever encountered (which is undoubtedly related to the software).

It was always like they were taunting you: “You want this? How badly to you want this? Bad enough to put up with this?” Hopefully this helps.

I’m entirely confounded by this statement.

Even prior to this update, the process went like this:

  1. Remove items from boxes.
  2. Plug in items.
  3. Install app on phone (or computer).
  4. Hold down buttons on items for a few seconds until they connect.

When I got my first piece of hardware, I had it set up and producing sound in no more than 10 minutes. I’d like to hear more details of what was so difficult for MG.

Even my employer, who has the incredible ability foul up every gadget and piece of tech he owns, was able to set it up on his own without calling me.
