Rejecting Sonos' private data slurp basically bricks bloke's boombox

One of the main reasons I never bought any sonos gear is that I was concerned about future compatibility..

My main concern being that in 5 years they might drop support for any of their hardware that I own and it will cease to work with the supported version of their mobile app on the OS de jour.

Seems that this was perfectly reasonable, if they drop support for a line of speakers but continue to push updates to the app I guess the speakers stop working?

If I ever need to stream audio that badly Ill buy a chromecast audio.. it has exactly the same issue but at least its not £200!
