Contrast that with today's changes, where Apple is taking high-quality industry standard components (such as the 3.5mm audio connector), and replacing it with proprietary and inferior quality connectors (forcing mini D/A converters in your headphones). That's why Apple supporters are complaining today.wozwoz said:StrangeDays said:...sorry but consumer media card slots and ethernet jacks aren’t coming back to the pro portable. Thankfully those who need such use cases can easily plug in an adapter. The rest of us will use wifi.
lol - wi-fi is for noobs. Pros use Ethernet.
And even Apple realise it, with the new iMac 'Pro' supporting new 10G Ethernet built-in.
The only reason there is no Ethernet port on the Mac notebooks is because the connector is too large to fit into the ever shrinking frame (much the same reasons Apple shifted from USB to USB-C).

Though sadly these days, so many desktop apps are electron apps, so I'm not sure it'll matter.

That said, I wish Apple would slow down a bit. Every year is getting to be a pain.
