We’ve just posted the following news: Bug in Sonos speakers makes that alarms can’t be turned off and went off too early[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2016/12/sonos-play5-black-living-room-speaker-95x75.jpg[/newsimage]

Users of Sonos Play smart speakers complain on the company’s forums that they can’t disable the alarm of their device after it went off. The alarm appears to sound one day early as well, and because the Sonos system can be grouped to play in multiple rooms together, the bug causes a lot of annoyances.

Initially read that as “[I]Sonos Play smart speakers complain on the company’s forums[/I]”.

Thought there had been some great breakthrough in bug reporting. But alas it was not so.

Oh, the apparent stupidity of modern computational devices, and the people who write the software that runs on them. How exactly is it that stupid errors like these always seem to make it to the final product without anyone noticing? Could it be that they did notice, but decided to sell their defective garbage anyway? Or did someone at the top say “the hell with testing, let’s skip to selling these babies!”?
