What a dense comment. What about campuses? Should I interview all 20,000 people that frequent it to make sure every single one of them is a character of the utmost morality? What about when I'm in the library, and I need to leave for a few min to take a phone call, to print something, to go to the washroom, etc? Does it not make sense in those situations to be able to lock it, instead of hauling it around everytime I need to step away, or being nervous when I do? What about coffee shops, when people walk in and out all the time, and I need to step away to go to the washroom? Can you not imagine millions of scenarios where a kensington lock might be useful? I've never demanded one, but at least TRY to imagine how its useful.

So Apple, should base their decisions around *you*? Where exactly do you work, and what do you do, in that an optical drive requires "alot" of usage? I'm curious, as I'm certain there's about 16,032 more efficient solutions out there for whatever you're doing with CDs. You seem to bemoan every single piece of technology that has been discontinued- maybe try to look forward, and improve how you do things, instead of clinging to the past all the time? I'm sure there's someone out there that wants every single port known to man on a laptop, does not mean Apple should include them. I'm a designer, work with like 100 files types, have about 80 clients, create and edit thousands of files, and not once have I needed a CD drive in the past couple years.
