One thought on “DTNS 2663 – Stream Oddity”
I know it’s not official that apple will release any device without a headphone jack, but it would be unwise of apple to do so. That kind of move would literally have people cursing apple’s name on a regular basis, so much so that I predict will affect apple’s bottom line. How many times have you gone to the airport only to realize you’ve forgotten your headphones? How many times do you think people are going to pay the premium to rebuy overpriced airport lightning port headphones/adapters? How happy do you think people are going to be when they are asked to throw out all their lightning port audio equipment when apple switches to USB type C? Apple would be foolish to make customers buy lightning port audio equipment because the costs (especially those who are forgetful) will be enough to make them jump ship.
