Pro Bono

Snackwave, re-inventing the phone call, JR on Ellis Island and more in our weekly look at the web

Don’t you hate it when house guests request listening to something other
than everyone’s favorite band, U2? Fret no further, new smart speaker Pro-Bono exclusively plays the band’s new
album Songs of Innocence—you know, the one Apple recently attempted to force on all iPhone users? Through Pro-Bono, even if someone selects a song from a different band, the speaker overrides it and only plays U2. A device so
brilliant, it’s a surprise Jony Ive didn’t think of it first.
