Good riddance to the headphone jack

Apple has dumped the headphone jack in the latest iPhone release.

Good. No more crackles.

As a species, we have become so used to headphone jack crackles, that we have totally accepted it as an unavoidable part of life.

But, not I. I remained annoyed by it. I’m happy to see it go. It twists and turns and crackles. Its important to get rid of these rotating connectors for any kind of data uses.

Now there will be a race to a new standard. It will be incorporated into increasingly multipurpose plugs. Soon we will be able to charge and do all other things at once through one connector.
