Program your smartphone rather than have your smartphone program you. Turn the sound off on your phone when you are out and about. If you find this is not feasible for you, then make a practice of not deferring to your phone every single time it makes a sound.
Once Windows 10 becomes the hit Microsoft hopes it will be, Microsoft will have more control over the price it charges. Right now, price may be an important validator, and an upgrade price of $0 does not validate much.

From 1993 through 1998 and beyond, Bill Nye has been The Science Guy, inspiring many to pursue careers in science and technology. Bill Nye's fans who are now parents share the program with their children, reaching yet another generation.
