Several reasons why Apple could (and should) pull the plug on the headphone jack

by Sébastien Page on Jan 12, 2016

Greed! Greed! Greed! Apple will kill the headphone jack out of greed. They just want to sell you $30 adapters.

This ridiculous claim is the result of narrow thinking. After all, it’s much easier to yell “greed” than trying to think of rational reasons why Apple would pull the plug (pun totally intended) on the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Apple is of course no stranger to that kind of situation. The company has been known for killing various technologies over the past few decades, and the bright side is that all of us have survived to tell the story.

In this post, I lay down a few more or less plausible reasons why Apple could eventually leave the headphone jack behind.  Read More

The best and worst of Apple in 2015

by Sébastien Page on Dec 30, 2015

This has been a busy year for Apple from a product release standpoint. The company launched the Apple Watch in April, the first entry in a new product category for CEO Tim Cook. Then it released a new MacBook, a new iPhone, a whole new Apple TV, and the iPad Pro. And of course there was Apple Music, iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. Busy year indeed!

As 2015 draws to an end, the iDB team takes a look back at the last twelve months. From software to hardware, to services, each Editor shares what he/she feels is the best and worst of Apple this year. Read More
