News post – Catch-23 No. 902 The iPhone price of progress

Apple have a long history of moving away from standard technology in the name of progress – they stopped including floppy disk drives and CD-ROM drives in their desktop computers long before anyone else. Their latest move – releasing the iPhone 7 without a standard headphone jack – is in keeping with this policy, but it sure has ticked some folks off. What Apple is referring to as ‘courage‘, others are calling ‘user-hostile and stupid‘.

At least they will sell a lot of headphone dongles.
