This WSJ article about people returning to landlines and ethernet cables — that’s my tribe, man. Now, I don’t have a landline (yet?) and I use ethernet only at my office — but my use of wireless technologies is gradually diminishing because … well, because they suck. They’re not reliable. Apple’s iCloud is terrible, so my primary backup strategy involves an external hard drive (supplemented by Backblaze, which as far as I can tell is flawless); Bluetooth is, I believe, the most unreliable technology in widespread use, so I have returned to wired headphones. I’m gradually restoring the status quo of twenty years ago, when my access to the internet was through one device that sat on a desk. And that sounds great.
