On topic: If Munster has lost 10 pair and a charging case, the issue is Munster more so than the AirPod. He needs to invest in those cheap straps.
Take this article for instance. There's nothing in it disparaging Apple or the AirPods. It's simple a collection of anecdotal tidbits about the tribulations of using AirPods in the crowded NYC subway system with a bonus splash of Gene Munster weirdness. Nothing connected to this article even suggests a failure by Apple. Yet you've found a way to make the claim. Why? And yes, I am saying Apple is not the target of unceasing malicious persecution. That's nothing more that excessive hyperbole. Are there articles written that are negative about Apple? Yeah sure there are. Criticize them until the cows come home. But grinding every thread with the somebody's picking on Apple meme... that's an lkrupp thing, not an Apple thing. Even in comments where you're trying to compliment Apple you can't seem to stop yourself from taking a dig at some perceived slight from some imaginary foe. By all means, you do you. Just sayin', some new material every now and then would be really appreciated.
The function key on this keyboard is in the exact same location that it is on the Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, so I'm not sure why that's a complaint since the layout is identical to Apple's product. This keyboard is not intended as a replacement for the smaller Apple Magic Keyboard. If you want a Satechi product that's intended to replace the smaller Apple Magic Keyboard then get their Slim X1 Backlit Bluetooth Keyboard. Since the X1 has the same layout as the smaller Apple Magic Keyboard the function key is in the same lower-left location.Interesting the function key is your primary con and not the fact that this keyboard does not have Touch ID (nor would I expect it to...but that's at least worth a mention in the article).
These have been out of stock for at least a few weeks by now. Helped my mom purchase a new iMac (she needed one right away and didn't care about waiting for the new processors, as much as I tried to convince her to wait) a few weeks ago and all that was available on Apple's website was the base storage on the iMac 21.5".
As far as the base storage being "a joke"...it may be inadequate for people like us, but most of Apple's customers people aren't people like us. For example, my dad hasn't used more than 80GB on the 256GB hard drive in his computer and he's had it for 12 years now. 256GB is just fine for what he does.
Some people...such as myself...simply have ears that are not shaped in a way that prevents earbuds from falling out.
I have never found a pair of earbuds that would remain secure in my ears without some sort of rubber "wing" that holds it in place. Regular earbuds of any brand simply fall out because I don't have a little lip on the bottom of my ear (it's flat), therefore there is nothing to secure it in place.
It's no big deal as I just find a pair that is compatible with my ear shape such as the Bose ear buds.

Also, not even all of the keyboards that Apple sells has it, and there are zero third-party keyboards that do. It would be notable if it did -- and it's not notable that it doesn't.
The iPhone is great at battery and charge management. I'll use my phone and then charge it up as much as I want and then if I need a new battery after a few years I'll have a new battery put in. Easy. IMO it's ridiculous to take all these "precautions" for years just to save $80 on a battery replacement. Here's an idea...save $1 per week in a jar and then charge your phone up or deplete it as much as you want. When you need a new battery you'll have plenty of money saved in the jar.

"Apple needs to work hard with automakers to deliver this level of system integration. Never before has CarPlay been able to interface with a car's real-time systems, and that will likely require fine-tuning.
CarPlay has to be perfect. The average weight of a vehicle is 4,156 pounds, according to a 2020 report from the Environmental Protection Agency. That's a lot more dangerous than rolling out an iOS update that introduces a storage bug."

It's sad that Apple has ignored parallel port-using customers in its desire to move forward and advance the state of the art.
This is where I insert the Henry Ford "a faster horse" quote.
I love how the people who will have no problem dropping $700 on a brand-new iPhone are already groaning about not being able to use the headphones that shipped with their 1983 Walkman. Cry me a river.
This is where I insert the quote "if it isn't broke, don't fix it".
