The fact that Android phone makers removed headphone jacks right after Apple removed theirs really says that if Apple jumped off a bridge, then Android phone makers would rush to find an even bigger bridge to jump off of.
Needless to say, this is an infuriating state of affairs (if only because I like having headphones that are cheap and dead simple that I can use while my phone is charging).
In the future, devices won’t have any controls at all! They’ll just show you what the advertisers want you to see. Doesn’t that sound convenient?
