You curse a lot and you're ignorant. So your answer to Apple completely screwing its customers is "buy another phone"? That'll be a lot easier said than done in a couple years when every other phone maker is forced to ditch the headphone jack and invent their own headphone jack-alternative technology so that Apple can't corner the market with their proprietary technology (which is what this is really about if you haven't figured that out yet). If you want to bend over and spread 'em every time a big corporation tells you to, feel free. The rest of us aren't lubed up so easily.

So buy a 3.5mm to USB C adapter that will cost you maybe $5. No one is forcing you or anyone else to buy bluetooth headphones.

False. I will not spend money to have an extra chunk of plastic hanging off my phone just so that I can make sound come out of it. What I will be doing is spending money on a phone with a damn headphone jack.

I wish I could mod this "-1 Wrong." What you're talking about is innovation. Innovation to replace a technology with a better technology is great. But this isn't innovation, this is forcing your users into using a proprietary technology that is cumbersome and worse than the technology it replaces, and then calling it innovation.

Comment SJW (Score 4, Insightful) 193

"YouTube demonetized videos for reasons that appear to punish those who attack 'Social Justice Warriors.'" This bothers me because I have found most SJW types to be arrogant, offensive jackasses and I think the majority of the public would agree with me. If YouTube is supporting SJW over those who are critical of them then that is just one more example of political correctness run amok.
