I'm not sure how much I agree with the DRM angle. Most music sold these days is DRM free. Is recording songs from services like Spotify that big of a problem?
How does it validate him as a film maker? Part of the job is being able to manage the process from start to finish. That includes dealing with and managing studio interference. If it was someone like Nolan, I would be fine blaming it on the studio. He has a fantastic track record and one stinker can be forgiven or blamed on interference. Snyder? Not so much. And I don't even hate the guy.
OTC brings up a good point on durability. The headphone jack is just about bullet proof. Compare that to lightning. It's prone to lint problems in the female end and the male end is prone to getting scratched up and will stop working. Who wants to invest any sum of money into wired lightning headphones if their lifespan is anything even close to that of lightning charging/sync cables? I've yet to have one last past 6 months. Most crap out closer to 4. Consider that then...
Again, nothing has been holding back advancements in wireless. You yourself said BT 5.0 is coming out soon. That was in development waaaaay before any rumors of Apple removing the headphone jack ever started to circulate. As I said in a prior post, they are different markets. The companies who produce wireless technology have every incentive to make improvements regardless of what Apple does here. This will accelerate nothing unless Apple decides to directly compete with...
Sure, things are moving towards wireless. Why not leave the headphone jack in? Wireless charging phones still have a way to charge wired if the user wants to.Also BT has a long history of making big promises on updates that never match what they said it would. I hope 5.0 is great but it's hard to have confidence in it being as good as they claim it will be.You don't want to deal with tangled cords that's cool. No one is stopping you from using bluetooth headphones right...
When does this hit the streets? I haven't seen the film yet and figure the extended version is the way to go.
Got that nice pair of $200 wired headphones you want to use? Great, here's a dongle. Want to charge your phone while using those same $200 wired headphones? Here's a second dongle to attach to your first dongle. Ugh. Gross to even think about.
Are you kidding? They are separate markets man. Always have been. Both coexist and fill different needs. If you honestly think there is a lack of incentive to to improve wireless technologies because there is a wired headphone option available then I have a nice bridge to sell you.
Why do you think removing the headphone jack is a "first step" towards great wireless earbuds? Nothing related to a hardware port is holding wireless back right now. Wireless headphones will or will not show great improvements over the next few years regardless if phones keep a hardware headphone jack or not.So why not just leave the port in and give the user options?Hell, all the latest rumors are the phone they are releasing this year won't be any thinner then the...
Article is a week old, but I re-read it this morning. Nilay really nailed why the removal of a headphone jack is fucking stupid. If these rumors are true, fuck you apple. http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/6/21/11991302/iphone-no-headphone-jack-user-hostile-stupid
