Requiem for a Headphone Jack
M.G. Siegler

Misses the point and comes off as “Apple knows best” via fanboy logic. Disagree with examples:

- The lack of a physical keyboard on the iPhone (this was actually additive and made things easier, not harder)

- The removal of the optical drive on MacBooks (no longer necessary for other reasons and provided a size & weight benefit)

- The end of the mouse (that was the whole point of mobile generation devices, use your finger not a separate device).

- The removal of USB ports (this one I also take issue with — in some cases they are coming back or are in slightly different form like USB-C)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
