Techno heads will buy it up as they do with anything new, whether it's useful; or not! That most likley is not what Apple fanatics want to hear but it is what it is.

And what "hot electronics"? It's a pair of headphones, hardly gets any hot.
Some people will complain about anything....

Betting my dividends would be higher if Apple spent a teeeeeny bit less on these eclectic and expensive stores that are popping up. Apple customers don't need a "floating dome" to shop for Apple goods and services. A mall store is just fine for me.
Comments like this remind me of why our world is so messed up. Humans are selfish, and not out of survival like the rest of nature.
So how is Apple's hard work at padding your pockets bringing value into your life? Do you drive an expensive car or a junker, just to be practical? Do you own a large screen TV or just read a book at night?
It goes both ways. Apple's investment in the "Apple experience" is why sales remain strong.Our TV is only 43." And I read lots of books, too, mostly from the library. We have no debt; not cars, not mortgage, not credit card.To put it in terms no millennial will ever understand, but every Boomer will, "You can't spend or borrow your way to prosperity."
Boomers literaly spend all the country's resources they were given and borrowred against the future of the country and of their children!
Well, Apple might never have been "against advertising" but most of us Apple users have always been - not just about better privacy but also seeing less or no ads. That should go along with paying a premium for a premium product. A cheapo company can nickel and dime their customers all they want, a premium brand shouldn't. These articles look like paid "damage control" and preparing the sucker buyers for the eventual landing of even more BS advertising on Apple platforms...

With the technology that Apple has worked with to power graphics in iPad and iPhone, it feels to me they can develop a custom solution to drive this at a reasonable cost versus putting a true "graphic card" inside a monitor. It would also allow the monitor to be sleek and sexy like its laptops.
Back in the iPod/Jobs days we had to differentiate and evaluate between all kinds of rumors.
And places like AppleInsider etc were called "Rumor Sites" for a reason. The ease (and naivety) with which current AI readers seem to scorn all "rumors" amazes me...
Now get the fuck out of my lawn...

it would be awesome if Apple announced lightning 2 before dropping 3.5mm.
So it makes no sense to say "lightning is still too large for a headphone standard that will span decades" -- as if in 2030 we'll be using some thinner and brittler cable and tiny physical port for sound. That would be so brittle, it would break at the first push or tangling. Instead we'll go from something like lighting/usb-C to wireless sound in smaller future devices.
