Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 171

Back on Day 160, I mentioned that we’d bought a Kinsa thermometer. We’ve been using it faithfully for a couple of weeks and like it a lot – except for one design deficiency.

The sounds the thermometer makes to tell you it’s finished are very high-pitched – they clearly weren’t thinking of Medicare-aged ears when they chose them. I looked at their support site to see if there was any way to adjust the sounds (spoiler alert: there isn’t) and noticed this FAQ title: “How to restore your thermometer after a failed firmware update”. I bet the Jetsons never had to worry about such problems!
