Meh, just learn the house rules and play by them.
Great rule by allowing players to only have one ear-bud in, maybe you are playing at low volume, but generally the "WHAT", that happens several times per session annoys the hell out of me.
If the dealer speaks at all about a hand, just call the floor and let them sort it, trust me he won't do it again.
Electronic devices is fair enough as well, personally I use my i-phone to take notes at the table, but i do it nice and carefully. Severally others are openly doing it and telling the fish "I'm noting that about you", when they play a hand badly. Its about to be banned at my card club, I agree.
