How I learned to stop worrying and love the AirPods

Don’t get me wrong, I still think they look silly – but after a couple of days I was prepared to take that in stride for the ease of just popping some headphones in my ears and have them work instantly. Unless I was running – turns out they’re not that good at staying in when it comes to exercise.
