As I stroll along Ste. Catherine Street in Montreal on a pretty much daily basis it is my wont to tune in to one or other of several available music streaming apps. Sometimes it’s AccuRadio, sometimes TuneIn Radio, or perhaps iHeart Radio.
I noticed that whenever I pass the pictured building above – corner of Ste. Catherine and MacKay Streets – my iPhone stops streaming and has to be restarted. In addition, once restarted it will, regardless of what the battery strength was at before restarting, indicate either 6% or 8% and will shut down.
I have learned to let it have a short nap, then start it up again. At this point, it will function normally and the battery strength indicator will reflect a true reading.
Curious fellow that I am, I looked up one day and noticed that the roof of the building is adorned with numerous antennae-looking things as shown in the above photo. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the abutting police station, but something up on that roof is causing me music-enjoying grief.
