Good point on the “they’ll buy all the dongles and adapters to make it work”.
When I shared the range of adapters Apple now has I started to get heat from fanboys that aren’t the target market. They were questioning why I needed them, which wasn’t even my point, because in three years they don’t think anybody will need them.
To be fair to them I think Apple signalled this a few years ago, dropping Aperture then downgrading Final Cut to a more consumer like product. The relative power of their top end products needed to support this work has been going down as well.
