Subby shouldn't be trusted with scissors.

Jailbreak a burner phone, use the FM radio, add the apps you need to use garage door opener, etc, and stay off line with it.

Do you smell toast?

That's Dr. J, subby.  And he's living happily in retirement these days, not messing around as an app developer.

I am sometimes slightly annoyed that I can't use my phone to control my television...

...But then I remember that my television is something like ten years old and works perfectly as a display and doesn't need to be "smart".

You know why your missile launch functionality access was rescinded. It was all in the TPS after action report.

Coordinates are not merely suggestions.

Management agrees that enabling caffeine access should be a precursor to initiating launch protocols.

That report was never distributed. It was returned for additional action due to missing cover sheet.

I have an old Samsung phone [note 4] . It has an IR port so it can control my tv.

Do you have any idea how easy it is to hack your phone? And if someone hacks your phone, and your phone controls your coffee maker, then they've hacked your coffee maker. We don't want that, do we?

A lot of Android devices had this, though it seems to be disappearing again.

But the bulletin explaining the failure to distribute the report due to processing error referenced and quoted the contents of the after action report which was not distributed, which, on a practical level, distributed the report.

subby doesn't need a new smart phone, they need smart smart products.  I can control my tv or connected appliances/devices with voice commands, phone widgets, or IFTTT.  Smartthings hub makes it simple.

I used to use my phone as a tv remote. The TV wasn't smart (I don't think that was a thing yet), but the phone was able to mimic a TV remote so it worked. My current phone doesn't have that ability, unfortunately. Ironically I have a smart TV now and the original remote doesn't work (never did), but it's a Samsung which has been busted for sending data back home that it shouldn't, so I leave it off the internet.

Progress, right?

Also, what's the deal with Samsung appliances? I stupidly bought a bunch, and every single one has had some really obnoxious issues. Aren't they supposed to be high quality? I don't get it.

I prefer dumb products.
